A couple lines of code started throwing an error message today.  This code has worked for months without every causing an error.
We are using Win10 machines and Access o365
Microsoft put out a windows update last night.

                        strURL="NoImage.jpg"
                        strPath = "\\fileserverpro\Database\ImagesPackage\PS1\" & strURL
                        Me.PackageImage.Picture = strPath


The error message is:
MyAppName can't open the file
\\MyServer\Database\MyImageFolder\PS1\NoImage.jpg

1. The problem shows up on multiple machines... all of which were able to work without error yesterday.
2.  When I type the path into my browser the image opens:
Path: \\MyServer\Database\MyImageFolder\PS1\NoImage.jpg
