My application keeps crashing on Windows Server 2012 R2.

Powerbuilder 10.5

Since migrating to a Windows Server 2012 R2 Terminal Server my application keeps crashing. On the old Windows Server 2003 TS it worked fine.

From the event log

Windows cannot access the file for one of the following reasons:

there is a problem with the network connection, the disk that the file is stored on, or the storage

Windows closed the program <program> because of this error.

  I have installed a trial version or PB12.6 (build 3506) on a VM under Windows 7 (the gui won't run on my W10 box, but that is another story), compiled the application and installed this in a separate directory. This doesn't help either.

This is giving me an ulcer. Can anyone please point me in the right direction.

I am desperate so any ideas are welcome.

I found this article

Removing all shares, moving the application from the application server to the terminal server and running the application locally from D:\application instead of from a share seems to have fixed the problem. Now instead of 30 users emailing me every 5 min with errors it has now run for a whole day error free.

I hope this helps anyone else with the same problem.
