Unknown error - when using config file

Hi there,

I'm having trouble with my config file that I want to use.
I'm using windows 10 and the 6.5.1 version of elastic, kibana and logstash.
I've encountered quite a few errors but until now I've been able to solve them with topics on here, but now I'm stuck.
The error I get tells me this:
Error: Unknown error (SystemCallError) 123 - FindFirstFile

This is the config file I'm using:

input {
file {
path => "/C:/Users/acer/Documents/Data/cursisten.csv"
start_position => "beginning"
sincedb_path => "nul"
filter {
csv {
separator => ","
columns => [ "nummer", "ID", "achternaam", "voornamen", "roepnaam", "datum van inschrijving", "BOW registratienummer", "einddoel", "soort cursus", "start", "einde", "bet", "max", "kosten", "cursus"]
mutate {convert => ["nummer", "integer"]}
mutate {convert => ["ID", "integer"]}
mutate {convert => ["BOW registratienummer", "integer"]}
mutate {convert => ["kosten", "float"]}

output {
stdout { codec => rubydebug }
elasticsearch {
hosts => ["localhost:9200"]
index => "cursisten"

This error will come up and it will start over until the error pops up again

[2018-12-05T10:39:28,813][ERROR][logstash.pipeline ] A plugin had an unrecoverable error. Will restart this plugin.

Error: Unknown error (SystemCallError) 123 - FindFirstFile
Exception: SystemCallError

I don't know where I go wrong, but it probably something in my config file.
If someone can help me find it out it would help me so much.
Thanks in advance!

change path
path => "/C:/Users/acer/Documents/Data/cursisten.csv"


path => "C:/Users/acer/Documents/Data/cursisten.csv"
