I cannot open file QuickBooks in server. The pop-up warning " QuickBooks was unable to open the image file. You may not have sufficient rights ti the data directory".

I used QuickBooks old version and select file in my server. The pop-up show the problem when I select "OK" the program return to "no company open". I tried to restart my computer but I cannot open file. If I restart my server, user can log in to use file. But I log off and log in again, the pop-up warning shows the problem. Please suggest how to fix? Thank you very much.
