no ideas, but we have the same issue here. we were using 2012 and now 2014 and it has always behaved the same. the only difference is our file paths are correct and in stead of it saying the path is wrong it just does nothing. another interesting thing to note is that you can not use the automated windows short cut methods to EPDM folders (RMB>send to> desktop or drag and drop into favorites). the only way around this we know of is to create a short cut on the desktop manually and then drag and drop that into favorites.
I will be interested to follow this to see if you get a result as this bugs me in a huge way.
