2013.x - Unable to connect to cable if UNC path is used to start vcse_server on a Windows machine

Description

When Starting vcse_server it fails to connect to cable.

This also happens in Vivado which starts the vcse_server with a UNC path (\\servername\sharename\path\filename)

For Example:
\\<servername>\<path>\201x.x\installs\ntxx\Vivado\201x.x\bin\vcse_server -port 50001

open_hw
connect_hw_server -port 50002

WARNING: [Labtoolstcl 44-26] No hardware targets exist on the server [localhost:50002]

Solution

This is a known issue.

To work around it, open vcse_server referring to the root directory.

For example:
C:\201x.x\installs\ntxx\Vivado\201x.x\bin\vcse_server -port 50001
