Description:

When we launch any project from Clarity to MSP we get the following error:

Microsoft Visual Basic: Error accessing file. Network connection may have been lost.

This happens for all projects on one workstation.

Solution:

Deleted the global.mpt file that Clarity creates on the users workstation.

The file will most likely be in the following folder: C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Application Data\MicroSoft\MS Project\12\1033

DO NOT DELETE the global.mpt file that MSP creates in the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\1033

Keywords: Clarity, MSP, Launch, Error accessing file, network connection.
