Windows 10 Cannot Run Executable Located On A Network Share Accessed Via A UNC Path
I’m running into a strange issue on Windows 10 to which I’m hoping you can help me find a solution. We have a Windows 7 workstation (named WS7-1) that is actually acting as a server for a specialized application (I know this is bad practice, but it’s a politics thing). The installation files for the specialized application are on a share on WS7-1 (share name is “Common”. The share permissions on the share are authenticated users have full control. The NTFS permissions on the share are authenticated users have full control. If I access the installation files via UNC (\\WS7-1\Common\InstallFiles\Setup.exe) from my Windows 7 workstation, I can access and execute the setup program without issue. If I access the installation files via UNC from my Windows 10 workstation, I get the following error:
Windows cannot access
You do not have permissions to access \\WS7-1\Common\InstallFiles\Setup.exe. Contact your network administrator to request access.
From the Windows 10 workstation, I can actually navigate to the install files without any issues. I just cannot run the setup executable.
Any thoughts on what could be causing this issue? I’ve read some articles stating it could be SMB related, so I’m going to start taking a look at some of those settings.
Thanks in advance,
