    Printscreen on a Mac with Bootcamp (XP SP2)

    All,
    I have a mac and I run windows on it sometimes. I'm running office 2007(because that's what the class I'm taking requires) and I'm trying to paste a print-screen image into a word file. Every time I try to capture a screen and then hit control V or paste to dump the image into a word document I get a series of messages titled "Object packager" the first of which is "access to the specified device, path or file is denied."
    Anyone have a clue what's going on?
    When I posted this on a mac forum the response I got was "I don't think this is a mac related problem, since Windows is running natively." So I thought I?'d ask the Windows people

    You must to make an additional step - put your screen capture into a picture editor program (as Windows Paint, Adobe Photoshop, etc) and save it as a file. I prefer JPEG file, but it can be also bmp, pct, gif, tif or any other picture format recognizable by Word.

    Then in Office document, select Insert > Picture > From file and point it to your picture.
