Error only on remote server "System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not find file"

Hey everyone

When I try to open a file i get the Exception listed below. The weird thing is it works when I run the web app locally and when i use a remote server and open a file on my computer. When someone else uses the web app and tries to open a file using the remote server the error below happens.

any help?

C# - filepath is a valid file name which is passed via the form.
System.IO.BinaryReader br = new System.IO.BinaryReader(System.IO.File.Open(filepat h, System.IO.FileMode.Open, System.IO.FileAccess.Read));

Exception Details: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not find file "C:\t.txt".

Source Error:

An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below.

And "C:\t.txt" exists on the remote server? And with correct access permissions?

This happens due to permissions, you can try to temporary grant access to "everyone" on your path, that why you will be sure that the problem is caused due to permissions.
