 Clipper 5.2e and Win95 network

Hi Ron,


- the NETBIOS Extensions that came with W95 togethret with the
CA-Tools (might work)
- the Netlib 6.5c from Communications Horizons (coded for Win95
and NT)

I have multiply clipper apps on win95 networks.

Assuming ntxrdd.
As I understand it, REINDEX requires EXCLUSIVE use of the dbf.

INDEX ON does not require exclusive of the dbf BUT DOES try to
open/create the index.ntx file EXCLUSIVEly.
If the index you are creating is in use/open by someone else, an error
should occur (overwriting an existing index file currently in use -
cannot open file exclusive).

If the new index is to be temporary, create a unique name for the
index -or- create the index on the local drive so it is available to
the user who created it only.

For permanent indices, open the dbf exclusively.

Not exactly sure what you mean here.
Is the drive shared?, write access enabled? Problem occurrs when, how
exactly? Problem with clipper app only or others as well?
