Windows 7: XP Mode: Software Preview Works On Local Files But Not Files On Win7

XP Mode: Software Preview Works On Local Files But Not Files On Win7

This is really rattling my brain. I have an old piece of software (Adobe ImageStyler) that I run in XP Mode. When in XP Mode, if I navigate to files on my Windows 7 hard drive (via tsclient) the software chokes for about 30s on the image preview when inside it's file explorer and finally gives up. The preview works without a hitch if I access a file in the local XP directory/drive. Not sure if it's meaningful, but when the software chokes on the preview of the Windows 7 file, if I click repeatedly on the filename, I can sort of bypass the choking and open it in 5 seconds. Any ideas why the software would choke when it tries to preview a file on the Windows 7 hard drive? Could it have to do with file permissions?

Much obliged to anyone who can figure this out. :-)
