RAPIException 'Could not open remote file' from an application on Windows 7 x64

Jan 29, 2014 at 2:34 PM
I have a file in '\Program Files\d\file.xml' that I want to transfer to 'c:\data\file.xml' using rapi.CopyFromDevice(@"c:\data\file.xml", @"\Program Files\d\file.xml", true).

I'm getting the error in the title and I have no idea why, the file is created by an application on the windows ce (5.0 or 6.0) device and it used to work fine on Windows XP, but the customer has upgraded to Windows 7 x64 and now this error appears whenever they try to copy the file with the pc application. I can list the file in a ListBox, so I'm guessing I have read permission or is that something that needs to happen explicitly on Windows 7?

I have had no success finding anything other than access permission as answers when searching the internet for an answer, and since it worked on Windows XP I doubt that would be the problem here.

I am having an identical problem with a windows mobile 6 device and a visual basic .net 2008 project on Windows 7 (64-bit)
