"Disk or Network error" message when trying to use an Access 2003 database on Win 7 64 bit OS computer.

We always receive this error message: "Disk or Network error" message when trying to use an Access 2003 database on Win 7 64 bit OS computer.

Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 3 has been installed as well as all other Windows 7 and Office 2003 Microsoft updates.

At this business we run Office 2003 with Service Pack 3 on several computers that have the Windows 7 64 bit operating system without any problems. I have done research on this and have found that Office 2003 will run on a Win 7 64 bit OS computer as long as Office 2003 Service Pack 3 is installed.

The only problem that we have had so far has been with this one user on the Windows 7 64 bit OS computer who tries to open up the Microsoft database on a remote network share.

All users who access this network share (including the computer that is having this problem) have full security and share rights to where this Access database file is stored.

There are usually one or two other computers that might have this file open. These two other users are able to access and make modifications to this Access database file without any problems. The user who now has the Win 7 64 bit OS computer had no problems modifying this Access file back when he used to have a Windows XP SP3 computer--even while the other two users had this same Access file open.

What do I need to do to fix this issue?

PLEASE NOTE: This question is NOT a duplicate of the other two questions I have just asked. The other two questions deal with two other customer sites, and this particular question has to do with a completely different (third) customer site. I need all three of these questions to be answered since I need to provide resolutions to the issues that all three of these different customers are having.

Sorry, all that I met by "a remote network share" was that this file is being shared on a network server, not directly from a client computer.

There is no VPN or other remote access connection involved here.
