Good day All. I have created an application in MS Access and it resides on a Terminal Server. We have created an RDP that has been placed on a SharePoint Site. When I click the link it goes to the TS copies the file I need and loads it on my laptop. This is working just fine for my account. The issue I have is that this connection will not work for some and will work, but only intermittently, for others. Concensus in-house seems to be that it is likey permissions or policy settings on the Terminal Server. I appreciate any assistance that is available.

I really don't want to have to call Microsoft!!!!

Your laptop has the necessary application to open it.

Does your terminal server?

is it intermittent on the terminal server or other laptops\desktops?

Yes all the laptops accessing it have the necessary software as does the TS.

The users that it works for, do they have standard domain permissions or higher elevations?

Is your account an administrative?

I would create a test user, and try it.

compare the user accounts that work, with the ones that dont work, permission wise.

OK.......Do you know if I can copy a file in SharePoint and paste to a local machine? I can't get the path to the SP file to work in VB.
