A recommendation (if I may)...
Well, the main reason is that XPlode can't tell that it's an actual file path.
The way to fix this is to not remove any double slashes. So there's going to be a lot of double slashes etc. in the log.
Unfortunately there's a lot of paranoid people.
I'll remove the code that rids the things of multiple slashes.
Why not include in the setup section a Network install yes/no option. I don't know if it will make the coding easier and also provide the required functionality.
Or a netpath='yes/no' option to the execute item.
Just a thought
