Tracking an application's file handles.
Having an issue with Corel Draw X4. Opening the file dialog (open/import/save) results in the application crashing unless you run it as the local machine administrator (be it via log on, or Run As...).
Here's the strange thing: It crashes under my account also, despite me being a member of the local admin group. My Documents is mapped to a network share, which leads me to believe that's where it's having the trouble.
Is there a tool available that will let me track an application's calls to the filesystem (successful and failed) so that I can work out where it's tripping up?

Sysinternals filemon should do the trick as we have used it in the past for such an occasion.

Cheers for that. I'm looking through ProcessMonitor's (filemon and regmon were retired, and processmon is the lovechild) log, and I'm sure I've found the offending dll, but there's no indication of what it was doing to cause the crash.
