This can be the case, for sure!  However, I have that all cleaned up.
The project works fine except for this single command - which does work
properly if the project folders are copied to and run from the local
drive.  Samba has always been transparent for us... No Word/Excel
issues, AutoCAD is fine too - except for this command!

This is a clean install of Land3 (we only just received the install CD's
and haven't made the full transition from Land2i yet).  I'm going to
create a testing samba share to deal with this... Too much data to be
playing with on the real server!

This is along the lines of my thinking.  It's like AutoCAD is just
misconfigured on this one routine. The options for Land are minimal in
this area.  I can't find a setting for placement of this temporary file
- neither can my supplier.  The other temp settings don't seem to apply
to this routine.

I agree.  I removed the setting you suggested earlier once I knew it
didn't work.

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.... ;-)

I will keep you apprised.  I think there is a hint in the fact that I
can kill the samba daemons, immediately restart and the command works
properly.  But I do get an error when I try to save the drawing!
