A forum for technical support discussion related to Fogbugz.
Am I correct in assuming the 6.0.37 release note "Added support for file, ftp, and outlook protocols when creating wiki links" applies to the Windows version as well?
I just upgraded to 6.0.39, inserted a link "file://\\MyServer\MyShare\" and got the error message:
"Wiki and Article names cannot contain colons or @'s, and they cannot consist entirely of numbers."
Trying "C:\" also fails, as does file://MyServer/MyShare/ and even file:////MyServer/MyShare/ !
The share DOES exist (yes, above one is bugs)...though I assume it does not have to (same as http)?
PS. The FB help does not appear to have been updated to show that file, ftp, outlook, notes et al are also possible.

Thanks for the information. You're actually experiencing a smaller piece of this "file:///" bug which has been fixed in the latest version (not yet released) but not in 6.0.39.
If you link to a specific file (specifically, some file with a dot in its path) such as "file:///\\MyServer\MyShare\foo.txt", then everything will work fine.
When creating a wiki link that lacks a dot in file:/// paths, 6.0.39 encounters a problem. As said before, this has been fixed and will be released soon...but in the meantime you'll need to link to specific files. I'm sorry for the trouble.
If you have any other issues please let me know.
P.S. Thanks for the documentation heads-up. I've opened a case.
