Aha! so now you know the documentation is telling the truth - "The true path is the only path." :-) (Sounds like a theme for a mouse-mat or a geek tattoo!)

You can't connect to any kind of virtual drive (subst, mapped drive, yadda, yadda, yadda), only to the physical path as seen by the host machine.

If your purpose is to avoid citing a complex path, use a database alias.
