    I have installed w7 ultimate, works great, also have installed Office 2003 because I don't like the newer versions user interfase.

    Everything works dandy, BUT, I can't access the W7 libraries from the word or excel open/save dialogs
    I know I can go one level up to check for the default libraries, but the ones I created aren't there.

    Is there a fix or workaround for this?

    Thanks and happy 2010!

    Do you have the latest Service Packs installed (SP3 for Office 2003)?

    I think that is probably not possible to view user created libraries because of the way that explorer is built into Office 2k3 and earlier. It is probably not parsing the XML that tells the explorer plugin for office to see the libraries which in this case there is probably nothing you can do.

    yes I do have office2003 sp3 installed, but it uses the old dialog for open/save
    Also tried the classic menu for 2007, its a kludge since it does not replace the ribbon, its just a new item in there, at least that was the case when I tried it time ago, did it changed?
