When trying to use Windows explorer to view a network drive it will fail and come up with the error

Invalid Local Device.

Has anybody seen this before?

What is Windows Explorer? You mean Microsoft Internet Explorer? Sounds like a Microsoft bug in any case.

Sorry, I should have made myself clearer.

This is a Power PC running Windows 95 and MAC.

I don't mean IE4 I mean Windows Explorer, you know windows sign + E.

This is the most likely explanation:

In many of these emulators there are only a few different pieces of hardware that it will recognise. If you have a card like a standard apple one it should work....but Apple have a tendancy to use different specs than normal cards. Look in the device manager in your emulator to see what type of hardware it is....then get some new drivers from the manufacturers website.

Hope this works,

I had a look at the machine.  It is not running an emulator but has a PCI card fitted with a Pentium processor. It has all the functions of a normal PC, but utilises a partitioned hard drive and shares the Macs communication ports.

But I will try loading the Network card drivers from the website.
