Microsoft Support found the solution.
1) In the Trusted Sites Security Zone, make sure "Launching
applications and unsafe files" is *enabled*
2) Add our Fileserver to the Trusted Sites list
I now see that this "problem" is a demonstration of the *increased*
security IE8 provides.
On a side note. As of late, I am very impressed with Microsoft
Support. On the last 3 occasions where I needed help, they were
tenacious in finding a fix.
It is obvious that Microsoft has revamped their Tech Support. It is a
big improvement from the days of no-help tech support.
