I can walked you through the steps to install to a shared drive so both work stations can access the same project files, however,since Farm Works is not designed for networking there is not data file protection. Meaning 2 people should not be in the same project data entering information for the exact same project at the very same time. As long as you heed this warning, we can make this work.

Start by installing the FW Office to the desired Shared Drive from that computer/server.
From the first work station wanting to access same shared drive, install from that station.
The screen right after the Licensee Agreement, shows at bottom the install Directory. Click on the Browse button and select that shared network drive to same location from this first computer/server. Complete installation. Repeat for each additional work station.

This will give the work station the required project files to access the program and create the shortcut to open program on that shared drive.

Once again since there is no data file protection - if more then one computer is accessing the same project and entered data, this could cause data corruption in the project.
