Error - "filename.fp7" could not be opened


     I host a number of Macs and PCs that use FMP10 and a startup file that links to a server in another department. None of these machines have a problem using FMP or this file. However,I recently set up a late 2012 iMac (OS 10.8.3) and dispite all the things I have tried, always comes up with the folloeing error message:

"filename.fp7" could not be opened. Either the host is not available, or the file is not available on that host.

This would appear to be a network problem but all other network functions on this Mac work fine.

I've tried reinstalling FMP10.0v3 and looked for and removed the one preferences file that I could find and still end up with the same error.

Is there something else that I might try?
