When I try to import in IntelliJ 13.1.3 settings from a jar that is located on my local drive, it works perfectly. The file chooser automatically updates the tree when I enter something like E:\bla\bla\.
Unfortunately, when I paste in a path to a remote location (\\myshare\ideConfig\idea\), it doesn't update the tree, nor let me import the jar file when I specify the full path to the file. A drag and drop, like it is hinted at the bottom of the window, doesn't work either.
I am trying to setup an environment so that many developpers will be able to share one base configuration. It's an obvious step to make the settings.jar available on a remote share.
How can I make this work? Is it a bug or a misuse of IDEA?
Thanks for the help :)
