In a workgroup of 5 systems accessing a shared drive, that's on a Windows XP system, a Windows 7 systems gets the following error when trying to access files using a shortcut, for the shared drive, that's on the Windows 7 desktop:

xxxxx.xxx is locked for editing by 'another user'.  

This happens on every file that is on the shared drive.
