Network file opens read only on one PC
Posted on 2009-05-12
When a user tries to open a particular Excel spreadsheet on the network, she gets the following error:
Windows cannot find "path\filename". Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start Button, and then click Search.
Then the file opens as Read-Only and is given a name with a sequential number and is located in a temp directory on the user's PC.
At one point the file was opened by another user but I had them close it. I rebooted her PC twice and that did not help. I can open this file fine on 2 other PCs I tested it on.
The user is running Windows XP Pro SP3 on a newly reinstalled PC, with Office Pro 2003.
