Hi John,

Might be wrong here, but I think this might not be a platform issue. This
is just a guess, but with some programs you would need to show the program
a pointer to the *new* location of the images on the current drive. If the
path for the images is specific to the Mac (ie. nested folders/specific
folder names) then the PC app won't be able to find the pics on the local
drive unless you are able to recreate the same path on the PC. Just a
thought. . .
