Mac Windows Compatability

Hello,

 

I have built a database on the Mac platform for a client. It's built off a FM content managment template with customization.

The media files the client is referencing are on a network drive. ( movies, pdf, images...etc.). The actual database is either

run with FMP 13 or the runtime. The database file is not hosted it's local.

 

Now they would like to use the same database on Windows 7 machines connected to the same network drive that holds the media.

 

All the records in the database were created on a Mac. When I look at the file paths to the media they all start with moviemac:/

 

Will the database on the Widows machine be able to link to the the media?

 

Thanks

Vincent
