Error Message: Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file When Opening The Program on a Workstation Computer
When starting the program on a workstation computer, the following error message appears:
’Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file’
This issue can occur if the Internet Explorer security settings are set to very high.
Reset the Internet Explorer security settings
- Exit all programs, including Internet Explorer if it is running.
- Click Start, type inetcpl.cpl, and then press ENTER.
- Click the Advanced Tab.
- Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset.
- Then click Reset again.

The program should now open normally on the workstation. There are more issues that can cause this. If the above resolution does not work, look into network connectivity. Also ensure the server and network infrastructure have power.
