This one will turn out to have nothing to do with WinEdt.

For educational purposes:
You cannot compare dvi search with pdf search: the former one uses
SRC specials embedded by TeX in dvi file and the later one uses
supplementary sync information produced by TeX in .synctex file.
In the case of Adobe, WinEdt's own synctex parsing algorithm
cannot find any reference to the file from which you are
initiating the search in .synctex file. However, Sumatra PDF has
its own algorithm to parse synctex files and it, too, cannot
locate the source file from the available data in .synctex file.
So probably there is something wrong with it (remember it is
produced by TeX and not WinEdt).
Does the Inverse Search from Sumatra work?
0. Delete synctex file and recompile to generate a new one. Still
1. Open one of WinEdt's LaTeX Samples (Documents Menu) and see if
it works with this one.
2. You can open your .synctex file in WinEdt (also check the date
on it) and then search for the name of the file from which you are
initiating the search. It should be somewhere there in semi-raw
text data. See if there is something odd there...
... and avoid spaces and international characters in filenames.
WinEdt has no problem with them but TeX often does.
That's just about all I can advise you (it is really not a WinEdt
