Can you open it directly from the server? via a share?
If so then do a local save after you open it.

@Neilsr : I am transferring the file from server to my local drive using copy/paste option  with RDC (remote desktop connection). Server drive is not shared.

This error can be caused too much white space or illegal characters.
