I have the same problem. Runing VB1.6.2 on Vista Ultimate host with WinXP Home SP3 guest, Office 2003 SP3

No log recorded when I opened a .doc or .xls file in shared folder。

But there is no problem if I open and save docx and xlsx files. I have the patch for use docx files in office 2003 installed.
