    This kind of issue can be resolved by the following steps: 1. Create a folder named "Temp" at the location specified by the User environment
    variable "TEMP"
    2. Default value: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp
    3. Log off of the current session and Log back on
    4. The user was now able to OPEN or SAVE files without error

    Good luck
