Consider this scenario. A program exists on an offline share of a computer that is running Microsoft Windows Server 2003. The share is optimized for performance. Network clients are running Microsoft Windows XP. When the second Windows XP-based client tries to access the program on the offline share, the clients may receive an error message that is similar to the following:
Program_Name - application. Error The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022). Click on OK to terminate the application. The file is locked or you do not have permissions to the file.


When you open a file that is in the cache, but the file is cached by another user, access is denied because you do not have permissions to the cached data. Therefore, the open command fails.
