That error has nothing to do with the code you posted. This is a problem with your database code somewhere.

If you really had tried every possible solution, then either you would have fixed the problem, or the problem would be unfixable.

What you presumably mean is that you've tried some things, and either can't remember precisely what, or don't want to list them here.

But as the others have said, the code you've posted is nothing to do with the error you're getting. So maybe start by looking at the code that is causing the error, and you might have better luck finding the solution.

Read the error message:
The network path was not found

That means that something that is trying to access a remote resource cannot find it, either because the URL is wrong, or the remote server is not available.

Start by checking all connection strings and so forth, and verify that the client computer has access to the remote device.

Sorry, but we can;t help you any further: we have no access to your code while it is running, or your system(s) - and you need both to work out the problem!
