Thanks for the input. I may leave it as is, because I've got a lot of Windows plugins working just fine. It was a sampler that I installed that first alerted me to the "File|Open" problem.

Interesting thing is, if the software doesn't use native Windows file browsing, then it will work. The 16-channel soundfont player VSTi "Phenome" lets me navigate to files, but uses it's own file browsing. Same thing with a programming editor I use and a visual programming language for Windows. It's only when calls are made through the native Windows .dll that does file browsing, and those will vaporize the program or plugin instantly.
