I had this problem too. By default, Vista tries to protect the Program
Files folder and its subfolders from having one user making changes that
will affect all other users. So when eQuest tries to write a file to
C:\Program Files\eQUEST 3-6\Projects
the file system actually stores the file in
(where "username" is the name of the user who is running the eQuest
Windows Explorer can only see the files where they actually live, but
older applications will be provided a file list by Vista that combines
the contents of the two folders.
I hope this helps.

I have just bought a new computer and am running eQuest in Vista. I
have followed the instructions posted to run eQuest as if in Windows
However, I'm running into an issue that is problematic: When I use the
regular explorer view to view my project files, any new documents
created by eQuest are not shown in the windows explorer. This means
that I cannot open .inp files, .pd2 files or hourly report files. When
I'm in eQuest and open a file, eQuest can see everything just fine. Any
thoughts on how to remedy this? I do need to view these file types!
Thanks for your help!

I would highly recommend doing all geometry in the wizard. If not you
will need to create each space/zone by hand which will be incredibly
tedious and unnecessary. If you are worried about the clutter of
schedules, materials, etc... i would recommend deleting them in the
input text file.
