What described in the OP is a but that was corrected in a service pack. Make sure the latest service pack from IBM for the Win7 install. Don't rely on the PTFs applied to the system if you are used to doing the updates from IBM i. Go get them from the web site and apply them.

If that does not correct the issue, then there may be another bug.

If you don't then whenever you try to copy from a non-local drive, it looks like it worked, but it fails and you receive NO notification. It's the first thing we do on all new installs of Windows 7. A higher level might work, but we just turn it off first thing as it just causes way too many problems with networking and non-Microsoft applications (i.e. everything we get from our core software provider:-) )

Subject: 7.1 Navigator copy& paste to Win 7

We are upgrading our old i520 to a Power7 running 7.1. Part of our testing includes testing Windows 7 along with it. One of the things that I did on the old box it was necessary for me to copy certain files from/QDLS/ using Navigator to my local drive so that I could use the file with another program. To do this I did a copy and paste. We upgraded Navigator and the process works fine with my old Win95 local. When I try the same thing with Win7 it looks like it starts the copy process, puts a placeholder for the file where I tell it to but the process just ends and the file on Win7 has a size of zero. If I FTP the file I can get it. I'm thinking this might be a Win7 permissions issue but I can't for the Google of me find anything about this. Anyone have this issure or ideas?
