From 32 Bit 2003 servers we cannot access a VFP DBC moved from a Server 2008 file server to a 2012 server

We've moved our data from a file server with MS Server 2008 operating system to a new file server with Server 2012 operating system. Users on 64 bit Windows 7 systems are not having issues running our VFP app after moving the DBC and other files required by the VFP app to the 2012 server. However, from multiple 32 bit MS Server 2003 systems we can no longer run that same app. On one of those 32 bit 2003 servers, if I try to open the DBC on the 2012 server within VFP I get this error, "Error reading file ...\isviews.dcx." Within VFP on that same 2003 server I can open DBF files on the 2012 server that are not contained with the DBC. It appears that the DBC or DCX files, now on the 2012 server, are not accessible from the 32 bit 2003 servers and this is what is keeping us from being able to run our VFP app on these servers.
