Storage Explorer v0.8.12 breaks if HOMEDRIVE offline
V0.8.12 update has broken Storage Explorer for me with an "Unknown Error" when starting. As the error refers to "P:/" I suspect it is something to do with the HOMEDRIVE environment variable that points to that drive. This is a network drive enforced upon my by group policy but which I never use. As I am currently engaged in trial Azure development I generally have to work offline from the corporate network due to proxy server and firewall restrictions we are not yet ready to lift.
I am working with our internal support to try and get GP exceptions but still feel that an offline HOMEDRIVE should not cause this particular application to fail.
Hi Ian, we are looking at it and will provide an update on this thread. You may also want to post technical issues at MSDN forum https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/azure/en-US/home?forum=windowsazuredata

Rollback to v0.8.9 fixes this.
