Windows 2000 and Windows XP users should be aware that we have found a conflict between the two OS versions in the way the \"My Network Places\" area works.

When loading or saving files in our products (such as wav files in Myriad), if you select a network location from the list of recently used network locations immediately under \"My Network Places\" you will find that the file is not correctly read or written from that location.

This is becuase Windows reports that location incorrectly to our software.

Therefore you should always specify the exact network location either via a UNC:
eg. \\\\[servername]\\myriad\\audio

or by browsing through the \"Entire Network\" tree to the destination directory:
eg. Entire Network>Microsoft Windows Network>[Workgroup]>[Computer Name]>[Share]

Then you should have no problems accessing the files.

As far as we are aware, this limitation does not apply if you are using the same operating system on both computers.
