First, check the properties of the shared folder. In your case, i guess the folder is ...\Company\... somewhere on the Server FPSERVER. In my case, the User SRV*** is running the QlikView-Services on the QlikView-Server and has access to the folder SETUP, due to the permission level of the owner. A read permission would already do this job. Make sure this also applies on subfolders.

Secondly, check the security on the file itself. It needs the right to read the file. In my case, SRV*** has full access to the used file.
