          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 120330
                CC: ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org
          Assignee: issues@lingucomponent.openoffice.org
           Summary: Spell checker fails when %AppData% path uses network
                    share notation
          Severity: normal
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Code
                OS: Windows, all
          Reporter: fraser_donald@hotmail.com
          Hardware: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: AOO 3.4.0
         Component: spell checking
           Product: lingucomponent

With respect to the spell checking facility, it does not like the Windows
%AppData% directory path setting using network share notation, for example:
"\\MyServer\\home\MyUser\Application Data".
The spell checking facility only works when the %AppData% directory path is set
up using a drive letter, for example: "H:\Application Data"

See issue:

You do not need to have a network share to reproduce this bug, all you need is
networking enabled and you can simulate a network share by sharing your
"C-Drive".

To reproduce without having to move your %AppData% directory do the following:
I have to use some values for this example so:
Assume that OO 3.4 is currently installed and spell checker is working.
Windows login user name: "MyUser"
Given that %USERPROFILE% expands to: 
"C:\Documents and Settings\MyUser"
And that %AppData% is currently set to:
"%USERPROFILE%\Application Data"
And the Windows Computer name is: "MyComputer"

Log in as an Administrator and share your C-Drive (C:\) as "C-Drive" and ensure
that the share has read/write access permissions for the user "MyUser" that you
are going to log in as.
Log in as user "MyUser" and edit the following registry setting:
Under key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User
Shell Folders]
Change value pair from:
"AppData=%USERPROFILE%\Application Data"
to:
"AppData=\\MyComputer\C-Drive\Documents and Settings\MyUser\Application Data"

Now log off Windows from "MyUser" and log back on again as "MyUser".

Now when you run OO 3.4, spell checking will not work.
