Opening an assembly on Dropbox: Can't find the subassemblies because full path is different

We have an assembly and its subassemblies in a Dropbox folder and subfolders on a PC called "Analysis." The assemblies and parts have paths like "C:\Users\Analysis\Dropbox\MyFolder\myAssembly.SLDASM". But I'm trying to open this assembly from the Dropbox on a different computer called "Packard." The path to the same assembly on Packard is thus "C:\Users\Packard\Dropbox\MyFolder\myAssembly.SLDASM."

 

If I try to open the assembly on Packard, it can't find any of the subassemblies because the full path of the Dropbox folder is different on Packard than Analysis. Is there a way to get this to work? It seems odd to me that Solidworks doesn't try to search the folder structure starting at whatever folder the base assembly is kept in.
