To resolve this error, try checking whether you can ping with the command prompt of the remote host by its IP address. Check the host for significant packet loss. Make sure that no security hardware or software is blocking the communication between the remote machines. Ensure that the File and Printer sharing on the remote host is enabled.

The full error reads “System Error 53 Has Occurred. The network path was not found.” This error can happen when you try to run the “net” command in the command prompt using the “view” option when viewing a remote computer on the network. The “net view” command is used to get a list of domains, computers, or resources on the network that is being shared by the specified computer.

When running the command, make sure you are in the correct syntax. To view a remote computer, the correct syntax is:

  • net view [\\ComputerName] [/domain[:DomainName]]
  • net view /network:nw [\\ComputerName]

“\\ComputerName” refers to the computer you want to view that contains the shared resources you want to view. Just replace “ComputerName” with the name of the target computer on the network, like for example, “room”. When you run the “net view” command, you will have something like without quotes “net view \\room”.

If you receive the error after running the command, check if you can ping the IP address of the target computer and also, if you can ping your local computer from the target computer.
