Problem exporting pdf file to desktop from FileMaker 10 on Windows 8

Hi at all,


we have a script setup that first gets the desktop path with "Get(Desktop Desktop)", then adds a file name and exports via "save as pdf".


This works without problems on Mac OS X with FM 11 and FM 12.


It works with FM 11 and FM 12 on Windows 7.


But with FM 10 and Windows 8 we get something like "couldn´t write because of no rights or wrong filename". Of course the user has full rights to write to his desktop. So what is going wrong here ? Do we have to create different file/path names on Windows 8 ?


Help would be appreciated.
