    I've just installed Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise.

    I have a app which I need to run, which is on another server on another
    network share. Any app which is executable, *.scr, *.exe, *.com errors with
    the following error.

    "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have
    the appropriate permissions to access the item."

    If I can copy the app locally it runs, is this new secuirty in R2, how do I
    fix/workaround this?

    I'd ask the application developer if this method of execution is supported.

    HI Dave,

    It works as all of the client PC's 80+ run the software in this manner. Also
    I can't run any application which is a executable *.com. *.exe, *.scr.
    Howerver if I rename one of those files to *.txt the it opens up across the
    network.

    This is Win2k3 Enterprise R2 SP2, It seems to be like a new secuirty
    feature....

    Probably so but the method is still suspect. Check the internet/intranet
    security zone settings.
