We have properly setup our shared folder from Mac OS X okay using the Parallels configuration screen, and when we double-click on the Parallels Shared Folder icon on the Windows XP desktop, we can open up our shared folder okay and see all of our documents from Mac OS X sitting there. THIS IS ALL OKAY, AND WORKS FINE! We can see all of our Mac OS X documents, sitting right there within the Windows XP environment!
However, when we double-click on one of the Microsoft Word documents from the Mac OS X shared folder, Microsoft Word 97 in XP gives an error message that says:
Word cannot open the document.
Try one or more of the following:
* On the File menu, click Open to open the document.
* Make sure the document has a .DOC extension.
The document already ends in a .doc, and we can see it right there within Windows XP.
We even tried remapping the shared folder to a network drive, and we get the exact same error message from Microsoft Word!
Then, when trying to open up the file from within the open dialog box within Microsoft Word, we get a different error message that says:
"You do not have access to the folder '\\.psf'. See your administrator for access to this folder."
So, in essence we can NOT get into the Parallels Shared Folders from within Microsoft Word, and when we double-click on a file from within Parallels Shared Folders, the application doesn't recognize the files.
Isn't this supposed to work? Any ideas to help us? This is driving us crazy!
