Error 100 File contains erroneous data. Normally for user data files.

Hello.  We have a LabVIEW program that reads in test steps and data in order to execute a test sequence.  Recently we had to apply Retina and Gold Disk security patches in accordance with DOD security policies.  Now we are getting the following error:


Error 100

LabVIEW: File contains erroneous data.  Normally for user data files.


We have not changed the code or files that the program is reading in.  My guess would be it is some sort of permission issue.  However, we have given the user modify permission to the entire C drive, and still get this error.  Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing it?  Thanks!

Do you have any backup copies of the files, by any chance? Is it possible the files were modified somehow (perhaps something extra was added when the new security measures were implemented)?


How is the file being accessed? Is it occurring on the local machine, or are the files accessed from a remote location?
