Default Can't open Word docs on server


Got a weird issue where I can't open Word documents hosted on our Windows servers. If I try to double-click any such files, Word just opens up to the blank gray screen with the Office bar at the top. If I open Word, and then browse to one of these files, I get the error "The document name or path is not valid. (\\?\C:\Users...\60DB7F0A.docx)". So far, I've tried:

* Opening the files by UNC path as opposed to drive mapping
* Opening files on a different server
* Repairing Office
* Reinstalling Office
* Renaming the Office folder in %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft
* Fully updating my copy of Office

The weird thing is, if I copy one of these files to a local drive, the file opens just fine. Can anyone here help?
