I am running a Windows Server 2003 SP1 R2. I cannot run ANY .exes files from this server, whether I try from RDP or a mapped drive, or from a UNC name. I get the error "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access the file." In regards to a specific folder, I know for a fact I have the proper security, because I've gone into the Security tab of the folder, into Advanced, and forced it to replicate the changes to all child objects. I put in Domain Admins (which I'm a part of). I also forced the owner of the objects as the local administrators group, which contains Domain Admins. I've also tried the same with Everyone, and Domain Users, to no avail. I've tried stopped the AV services (CA EZ Trust - don't get me started), as well as Diskeeper... my thoughts being to stop anything that might be locking these files.
I'd appreciate any help on this, it's causing a serious problem on this production server. Thank you all very much.
