I have an application that has been running fine from mapped drives for years.  For some reason, I can not run the application from a mapped drive any more BUT IT WILL RUN from the drive if I use the full UNC path.    It will run from C drive fine but it will not run if I share the folder on C drive and map a letter to it.    The event log shows Exception code: 0xc0000005 (access violation) every time I try to run the application from a mapped drive letter.

 

I have run Webroot AV scans and I have tested with AV shut down.  I have tested with firewall shut down.  I have run Malwarebytes and Spybot scans.  I have run CCleaner.  I have played with permissions and run as admin.   I created a new user profile and tested - which worked for a day but now all profiles have the same behavior. 

 

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate - 64 bit with 32mb ram.  The application is a 32 bit app and known to be stable.  This problem is not happening on other machines.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.  

Thanks in advance.

Johnny

Hi Johnny :)

Simple question, did you try running the application with Admin Rights? Right-click on it and select "Run as Admnistrator"? A 0xc5 error code is often caused by a program that wants to do an action requiring Admin Rights, but wasn't launched by one.
