Description weetabixharry 2016-04-14 10:16:30 UTC
Upon creating a new project (C/C++ Application) on a network drive, two instances of main.cpp show up under Source Files. Unsurprisingly, this fails to build with a "multiple definition of `main'" error. 

However, if I remove one instance from the project (or try building and running one of the Netbeans example projects), then it fails to execute, with a "... does not exist or is not an executable" error.

These problems do not occur if the project is created on a local drive.
