Notepad says: “The file does not exist”. WordPad works. And I can clearly see the file in the Windows explorer.
Today, I’ve had to debug a really weird issue with the Samba 2.1 network protocol on Windows 10.
Two nearly identical machines are accessing the same network share using the same Windows 10 version.
Yet on one computer, accessing the network share works flawlessly, but on the other, it only works halfway.
When I opened the network share in the Windows explorer on both computers, the results looked exactly the same.
When I opened a test text file in WordPad on both computers, it worked exactly the same.
But when I try to double-click the text file, it will open in Notepad, which only worked on one computer but not on the other.
