comment Licensing and Editions of Microsoft BizTalk and SQL for Development, QA, Stage vs Production
My coworker fears that if you don't test it on a cluster, it might not work on a cluster. The deploy to a cluster is somewhat different as well. I'm not quite as concerned.

Please see line one of my question: My question is more about "which edition" to use. Suppose I have all licenses I need, but still want to be cost effective and follow best-practices. Maybe #2 in my question is duplicate, but not #1 and #3.

Okay, more interesting results. If I type exactly as you provided, C:\Windows\Sysnative\winevt it works. If I break it into chunks, and do C:\Windows, then try to type Sysnative, it does not work. Great answer, thanks!

Did you try it with IE or NotePad++? I browsed to c:\windows then tried typing in sysnative, and get "file not found". Same with c:\Windows\SysNative. Maybe that works in code, but not from the browser dialogs windows?

A file open in Sql 2008 SSMS cannot see it either, so even some Microsoft Tools are impacted. Of course, I would never open an event log in SQL, but just an example of a Microsoft tool having the same issue. Likewise IE 8 cannot see the directory with File Open.

I used NotePad and NotePad++ just as easy-to-reproduce examples. We recently bought a tool called Event Log Explorer that also has the issue; it's my tool of choice. Maybe these programs are using a different API to build the dialog/browser. But it seems like if the directory is there, not protected, visible, etc... that it should be able to be seen by all tools in any "open dialog" window.

I've added two screenshots to the original question. What other details do you suggest I provide. It's a physical machine (not-VM) running our production BizTalk environment. Wouldn't this be either a security permissions issue, a UAC issue, or something like that?
