O.P. Huh?  Polygamy & Sharing Folders Problem
I've got a problem that I guess others have as well which that I can only access the Sharing Folders for one of my accounts whilst using Polygamy. Is there a way round this that I can access them all at the same time? Many Thanks. :)

RE: Polygamy & Sharing Folders Problem
C:\Documents and Settings\<Windows user name>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Messenger

In here, there is a hidden file which is named 'activesharingfolder.dat' and I think it is created while you are starting a session on WLM. So when you sign in with your second ID, it is replaced with that second one and you must lose your previous ID's Sharing Folder access. But I think you can always access that directory and view files according to your Windows Live ID.

I wonder something. You are trying to open your Sharing Folders for both accounts through Messenger, aren't you? (I didn't test it but it may work in this way) Note that if you are trying through the icon on My Computer window, it may only direct you to the last session's Sharing Folders.

EDIT: maybe Patchou was talking about this problem in "As this procedure is not supported by Microsoft, Messenger may not function properly if this option is activated."

Edit2: One paragraph was struck out after being tested.
