NetWare 6.5 SP5

We are experiencing an issue saving Adobe Illustrator files. They are
being saved on an NSS volume. The files get a strange extension .ai. Has
anyone seen anything like this?

Yes I see it every time I save an illustrator file as .ai is the
proper extension for Illustrator.

Perhaps he's not used to seeing any extension at all because windows
extensions are usually hidden for known file types and that's changed on
his system?

OK here there is a file for example Intern Dollar.ai. The user makes
changes and saves it but it saves as the following, Inern~1.ai. The user
can not open the file after. Could this possibly be op lock file or file
caching related?

This sounds like normal windows mapping of long file names to 8.3 format
("DOS compatible names"). I'm not sure why there would be a problem
opening the file.

Re: NetWare 6.5 SP5

Some people have read "XP performance tuning" tips..and turn off long name support (or, 8.3 naming support as it were)...this muffs up a lot of stuff. I'd recommend he make sure all default windows namespaces are enabled.
