it's not possible to point (reference) to documents inside PDMW.
if the 400 assemblies were in the vault then your scenario would work.
everything has to be in the vault for this to work.
Thanks for the reply. I was talking to someone from SW about another issue and mentioned moving to WPDM, any way he seemed to give the impression that you can go about this gradually. It almost seems to me that the easiest thing to do, & right now I'm looking at this from the outside in, would be as a last step to make a copy of the file from the vault, if possible, or right before you check it in etc., & put it into the network where all these files are looking for this stuff. That is until the stuff all ends up in the vault. A bit of a cumbersome step, but I would think worth it temporarily to be able to gain working off the C:Drive. The think I don't like is having more than one kind of like nucleus, but how else could you do it, aside from moving everything, & I'm sure that could have it's own set of even greater challenges.
Any further thoughts appreciated;
