Appdata is not a network location. It is a hidden folder under your user name.

Is there any more information that could shed light on the situation ??

%appdata% is normally not a network location. Go to a command prompt (CMD.exe). Type in "set" find APPDATA in the list and report back what it says

It is a problem with your environmental variables, try this to correct the problem :

Right-click your Computer --->Properties --->Click the Advanced tab.

Click Environment Variables.

Add these entries (click New...) for both User variables for Owner and System variables:

In the Name box: APPDATA

In the Value box: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming
