I installed a new Windows Server 2012 with Exchange 2013 and as a file share for public documents.
When I am searching from a windows 7 Pro station on the Network share I get a list of files docs and pdf's the icon with file type isn't listed and I can't open any files when I click on them.

Have you checked your file associations?


Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs\Set Associations


How about the share permissions?

Can you write a new file to the share?  Does it show the icon?

Yes, I have permissions to r w d in the share. It is intermittent. Sometimes the icons show up and work just fine. It is several users in different directories on the Serer 2012 File share.

how are they mapped?

By share name or ip address?

How large are the folders?

Network speed?
