/Config Switch to Reference Network Share Location

I am working on a Configuration project that i want to deploy to a common network location that all of my worldwide users can access.

 

Lets say all users have a mapped directory X:\Pro\Install

 

Within that Install directory i have the file Pro.proConfigX.

 

I want to create a desktop shortcut on their individual computers that reference the latest config on the network share.  i don't want the user to have to install the config to get the latest version and put it in their know good folder.  I don't want the user to have to run the install on the config.

 

Instead of this 

"C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\bin\ArcGISPro.exe" /config:Pro.proConfigX

I want this

"C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\bin\ArcGISPro.exe" /config:X:\Pro\Install\Pro.proConfigX

 

I have tried all possible combinations of the /config switch and can't get it to work.  I have tried quotes, double backslashes, etc.  Nothing seems to work.  It appears the user has to install the .proConfigX everytime there is an update.  I am not able to reference a known location for a configuration like I am an addin.  

 

Any Ideas?
