    I´m desperate to death for help!

    One of my clients has a Windows 2003 network, and an art depth with MACs. Since the MAC OS was updated, a problem started to happen. When a file of any kind, like font or pictures is accessed directly from the windows 2003 network sharing (located on the server), only a black figure appears and never the file itself.

    Some MAC support guys told me that some versions of MAC OS 10 just doesn´t get it working. Is that true? Will I have to call the assistence to format them again?

    Does anyone knows sometinhg about this problem? (If I copy locally the file, it doesn´t happens. Olnly when the file is directly opened from the server sharing).

    If I don´t get this clue solved, I'm going to loose the contract.

    Thaks in advance (sorry for my missing english).

    Ciao Marcela

    Apple have just updated OSX to 10.4.7, which includes a number of patches for Samba networking (Windows file sharing) and for working with files on network volumes. Have you installed the update yet? If not, give it a try and see whether it cures the issue.
