is not a valid win32 application when files attempted to open from network

Hi,

I have a new environment where i don't allow users to store files locally.  when they attempt to right click a file out on the network and choose "Open With > ProgramABC" it says that the application is not a valid win32 app.  This application when loaded locally and accessing local files works fine.  

What should I configure?

What file types? Microsoft file types shouldn't exhibit this behavior.

A program called Askia.  It's a tables software program for statistics.  Do you think it would help if Askia was installed where the actual files were located?

It should be sufficient that the program is installed on the PC from which the user is trying to open it. If that's not working, I would try to install Askia to the location where the files reside, yes.

I just had to go into Folder Options and associate the file extension with the proper program.
