I opened my Vivado project using a UNC path format on Windows.
However, if I try to run any of the flows I receive an error about a missing file or directory.
If I open the BFT example using a UNC path in the Open Project dialog, when I launch the run, the following error appears:
*** Running vivado

UNC paths are not supported in Vivado 2014.1.
However, in Vivado 2014.1 there are no checks to prevent a user from opening a project with a UNC path designation.
The Vivado 2014.1 Installer can use a UNC path to install,
However when using Vivado tools, the path should be mapped to a drive letter in order to correctly run.
