    Hi,
    There is a bug when trying to install a package from a network folder:

    Cannot perform upm operation: Unable to add package [com.pixelshub.test@file:/hal/UnityPackages/com.PixelsHub.Test]:
    The file [D:\hal\UnityPackages\com.PixelsHub.Test\package.json] cannot be found [NotFound]


    In this case the folder in wich the package is located is \\hal\UnityPackages, not D:\hal\....

    It's easy to workaround the bug copying the package by hand to the local file system, but I wanted to report the bug nonetheless.

    As a workaround you can try to map the shared folder to a drive.
