Project Sharing Crashing When Committing, Refreshing and Releasing in General Discussion Posted April 12, 2016 After many crashes... project files disappearing... lots of lost time... we have stopped using 2016 Project Sharing until it can be proven to be more reliable. SP3 seems to have fixed a number of issues... but the AFP/SMB issue that plagues the Project sharing feature is not worth delving into that again. The guide for VW project sharing says we need to connect our Macs to our Mac server via AFP and not SMB. But SMB is the default since 2014. It's not a simple matter to try and force all the Mac's in the office to revert back to the old AFP format. (Believe me, we have tried!). I look forward to the VW team to come up with a solution that can make this Project Sharing feature "just work". Right now, it does not, "just work". Unfortunately, I suspect they are busy stitching up their 2017 "features", planning 2018 features...etc. instead of focusing on simply making a version that "just works". That's just my feeling.... what with them having to push out a new version every year... which doesn't seem to "just work" until at least SP 3 or 4. Will try again when SP 4 comes out the door.
