Possibly check permissions on your WordPress install folder. WordPress might not have the right permissions to read the wp-config.php.

This is a "control freak" VP at our company, who will "ask" why? And "why is there an error.?  What does the error mean?

This site has been live for 18 months, and never any problems. The person that got the error is a "control freak" VP at our company, who will "ask" why? And "why is there an error.?  What does the error mean?

Well since the site works fine he may have a cached copy of an earlier attempt to access the website when it wasn't setup/working properly.

The problem seems to be present only on this computer.
1 - I will then check first if it happens in another browser on the same computer.

If no, this is probably related to the first browser
I would examine the following suspects:
- cache: clear it (at the same time, I would probably reduce cache size to 25-50 Mo instead of the huge usual amounts)
- cookies: delete ALL cookies of the domain AND subdomains
Then restart the browser and check again
(you might suggest your guy to install CCleaner and use it to clear the cache and select which cookies should be cleared)

If none of this works, or if the first test did exhibit the same problem in other browser, I would suspect a NETWORK config problem
- what are the contents of the files hosts and lmhosts?
- is this machine connected in DHCP? are the IP addresses for the config correct? (check that for wired AND wireless networks...)

It's got to be caching on the client browser.  It worked correctly for me (however the site was dismally slow).
