Calling this code from C# web app:
                            return File(path, "application/msexcel",trimmedPath);

Open in new window

If I run in Visual studio the command works and the file is downloaded.  If I run on the server I get this error
Could not find a part of the path 'r:\results\19262\19262-BA-T1\19262-BA-T1-19262-BA-T1-2_12_11_2014_32C_CST_8870.xlsx'.

Open in new window

If I copy that path into explorer it opens on the server
In IIS I have set Physical path credentials to my userID

Resolved it.  Issue was that the process was running under the application pool user credentials. Switched it to the NETWORK SERVICE user and it worked.
