I have a network drive (named Z:) that contains various .dgn files. When I double click these files on various computers, it opens up perfectly fine in Microstation. However, on one PC it simply says "File [Z:\PSXXXX Prelim Triangles.dgn] does not exist". Also when the drop down for drives appears, it does not show the Z: drive at all. The settings for Microstation is the same for all the PCs as well, and other file types (like Excel files) all open up fine on the network drive.
Does anyone have any idea what the problem is?

Are other files (e.g. a Word document) on the Z: drive also unavailable on that PC?

No every other file type works.
does the same thing happen when another user or administrator logs on to the PC and attempts this ?
Yes, I can run Microstation with administrative privileges as well, but it still does not work.
Sorry to do this, but its version 08.05.02.70 (not 07)
Ok I solved it. I had to change the default Microstation explorer to the Windows explorer and suddenly the Z: drive is picked up (even when you revert it back to Microstation explorer.) No idea why it works but it works.

Well, MicroStation 08.05.02.70 is not certified to work on Windows 7 and certain functionalities may not work, apparently there is something about the legacy MicroStation explorer that can't somehow find the drive by it self.
