  • File Writer directory

    My backslashes get converted to forward slashes in my File Writer Directory. I am using Mirth version

    This issue has been reported here

    However it is reported as 'resolved' and 'won't fix'. It says to use UNC paths but I still have the same results.

    Any ideas on this one?

    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    Re:File Writer directory

    Anybody have any ideas on this one? It seems strange to say that it is resolved, but that the problem is still there. The UNC paths that I am familar with have backslashes in them just like a directory would. So using UNC paths dont seem to be of help.

    Saving a file from a LLP seems like it would be a basic step. It feels like I am missing something here.

    Thank you,

      Using Mirth 1.7

      In Microsoft Windows environment, Mirth changes the back slash in the directory path to forward slash. This does not seem to cause a problem as files get written successfully. Also, same behavior for File Reader, and it works fine.

      Here's a sample:

      Directory location entered as:

      Forum is messing up the back slash.

      "BackslashBackslashServerNameBackslashShareName" - Mirth changes to - "//ServerName/ShareName"

      "C:BackslashTestBackslashOutbound" - Mirth changes to - "C:/Test/Outbound"

      Using "FileReader source to FileWriter destination" and "LLP source to FileWriter destination". Both work fine.

      Hope this helps!
