Execute Alfa Books from two computers

I have Alfa Books installed on my desktop computer, with the books and database on the desktop computer. I'd like to run Alfa Books on my laptop and access the mapped drive database on my desktop. I've tried, but I can't open the files (epub). The database info is correct and the file path appears correct. However, the file path is not active. Perhaps I did not setup Alfa books properly. If this is possible, what is the process?

Hi,
You need to map the desktop drive as Local on your laptop

I suppose that you could try to run both the database file, and books files from a same directory within dropbox or sugarsync, so you could use the features anywhere...

I do have the share drive mapped. I can't get the links correct on my laptop. The links remain the same as on the desktop (e.g. Drive D). How do I get the links to call out mapped drive D (e.g. drive N) of the laptop? What's the process for changing the hard coded links?
