Strange Issue with SketchUp 7
I have a weird issue with SketchUp 7 under a student account on any OS - XP, Vista or 7.
Whenever I try and save to the root of My Documents of a student user, it crashes SketchUp and loses the file created. In addition, under XP only I get a message on clicking Save As "\\server\share" is not accessible. Saving under sub folders of My Docs works fine, and if you save to the root of drive U: (the drive letter of the student's home folder), the same location as My Documents with the same permissions, it also works fine.
Anyone else had this issue? It's a bizarre one, at present we are OK to just tell students to not try and save in the root of My Docs, but would be nice to eliminate this weird crash!

Yay! Someone else with the same issue as me!
I've never worked this one out, but I discovered recently that a similar issue occurs with Lego Mindstorms Programming. You can't save to the root of My Documents, but you can to U:. Looks like there is some policy that trips these two programs up, but try taking a Student policy apart with the number of policies that have to be set!
The issue is OS independent, it happens on Windows 7 as well as XP.
