An odd problem. Most likely I'd guess it's saving the file in the wrong
place, or at least in a different place from where it looks for it
later. I seem to recall some changes about home directories under XP,
it's probably trying to save in your documents folder somewhere.
I'm not sure how to easily trace the save location however.
