Error 2426 Microsoft Access error

I have a client with a Windows 7 Pro-SP1 64-bit OS and Office 2010 32-bit v. 14.06.6129.5000

Until last night (when an update happened) a batch file short-cut on his desktop worked fine.

It copies a 2003 copy of an application locally and opens. When the user clicks on a tab to get to reports he gets an Error 2426 (no further information).

Now - if I move the front-end to his desktop it opens and works just fine.

I compacted/repaired. Compiled. Checked for Missing References, etc.

Any ideas on why this might be happening? Other users (who did not go through the update) are not experiencing any issues. They are able to use the short-cut to get a copy sent down to their local machine, open it and navigate without issue.

Thanks for any advice you can provide.

<copies a 2003 copy of an application locally and opens. >
Can you elaborate on exactly what this means...?

Because you also go on to say:
"if I move the front-end to his desktop it opens and works just fine."
"Desktop", literally meaning on the users machine's "desktop, (as opposed to a folder on the  C: drive)
Or is "Desktop" synonymous with "Local Computer"?

In a standard "Split" database, the Front end is always on the user's local machine, and the backend is typically on a Server share...

I am not sure how to withdraw this question as I never got an answer and the client says the error has "resolved itself" ??
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
