Reading .txt file on Windows Server 2008

I have a Java 7 application that we distribute, and it reads configurations from a .txt file distributed with it, in the same directory as the .jar file. On Windows 7, windows XP, Windows 8, this works fine, but on our server, running Windows Server 2008, this fails. It is a simple check that fails:

Path p = Paths.get("config.txt");

This will not work on Windows Server 2008 r2. It suspect that it somehow hasn't got read permissions, but I'm not sure.

It also fails if the absolute path is specified.
