What is Error 0x80070035?

Error 0x80070035 or "Network path not found" error occurs whenever a user tries to open a company file on a Windows Vista workstation. Since Microsoft has ended offering support for Windows XP, users operating on this OS may experience the error while accessing a company file from a Windows XP host machine.

"Error 0x80070035: Unable to open company file, network path not found."
