Studio 2014: Edition differences in handling docx project package?

I am using SDL Trados Studio 2014 Freelance Plus. Now I am assigned to a localization project whose project package does not include docx source files due to file size considerations. Accordingly, it is impossible to perform export batch task in this project because of errors (Access to the path of the original file denied).

This situation may be due to losing the dependency links between the sdlxliff files and their corresponding source docx files by not including the source docx files in the same path as the sdlxliff files when creating the project package.

Then, the PM of the project tried to restore one of the links by opening a sdlxliff file. When asked if you specify its source file the PM copied the appropriate docx file to the same folder as the relevant sdlxliff and then selected the docx file in the dialog. And then updated the sdlxliff by typing in some translations in the target segment and saving the sdlxliff. With this procedure it became possible to export the file.

But, the result of this procedure could not be reproduced on my side using my copy of Studio 2014 Freelance. The only difference seems the editions: the PM is using Professional edition of SDL Trados Studio 2011. So this problem may be due to project package handling restriction(s) on Freelance edition?

Best regards,
