I'm using VIZ 2008 with XP Pro in a small network. I'm trying to copy the materials library for tutorials to a shared folder to copy to other stations. When I copy and paste the files to the shared folder, they turn into MicroSoft Access Shortcuts. When you open one it opens Access. Nothing there, just Access. I know they're transferred as files because their sizes are what they should be, but they are marked as Access shortcuts.

XP won't allow an Open With so I can't reassociate the files with VIZ. They are materials files so their extension is .mat.

Anybody help me with this?
