The site is on a network drive...

Bingo.  That's the likely culprit.

Try moving the site folder to your primary hard drive.

1. Is your local site folder on your primary computer drive?  If not, try moving it there and redefine your local site folder as shown below.

2. What kind of links are you checking?  Are the paths Site root-relative, Document-relative or Absolute (https:)?  See below for details.

NOTE: Dreamweaver does not manage Absolute links for you.  That's beyond it's capability.

The site is on a network drive and the paths are document related.

That was it.  I was able to run the report after I copied the content to a local drive.  Thank You.
