    Hi all,

    I'm trying to port a DTS made in SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005.
    The DTS has a step where I try to read from an .ini file (stored on
    local disk c:\myFolder\myFileIni.ini).
    Under SQL Server Management Studio I'm able to correctly execute the
    package, but when this DTS is executed from SQL Server Agent as part
    of a scheduled job the following error arises:
    "Error = -2147220492 (800403F4) Error string: Could not open
    file for reading. Error source: Dynamic Properties Task"

    I tried to reference such file both with local path c:\myFolder
    \myFileIni.ini and with UNC path (\\MyMachineName\myFolder
    \myFileIni.ini, given that myFolder has been shared with "MyFolder"
    I also tried to execute the job with a proxied user.

    None of the previous tricks have succeeded.
    Moreover, I'm able to read the file using a T-SQL script executed as
    the proxied user.

    Any hint?

    Thank you very much!
