Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item

I got the following message when I tried to run a .exe program from my network drive (K:) drive.

Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item

I was able to run it before.  I also got this message when I tried to copy and run the "cmd.exe" command prompt program from Windows to this K: drive.

I checked my security tab, I am using domain administrator to logon to my terminal application server via Terminal Service.  I can create a file to this K: drive and I can see all files there but just cannot run the .exe or .bat file suddenly.

this K drive is on a Windows 2008 server.  And my Terminal Application service server is Windows 2003.

any idea?

Confirm the security on the folder/file and verify that you have execute permissions.  It is possible that permissions have been removed/modified.

Also, can you copy the file locally and run it successfully?

I checked that either, I have full control on the program itself.  Also, I logon to my own user name to TS and run the same application, it works.  Looks like, it does not like administrator account suddenly.

I have solved it. The difference was IE7. I have to do the following, then I can run my app from network drive.  I believed; it was caused by upgrade to IE7.

Internet Explorer Options
Security
Local Intranet
Sites
and add \\servername
