 DOS Error 55 using 5.2e/exospace/Win95 workstations/NT 4.0 server

We have recently converted to NT from Novell and are being plagued by DOS 55
Errors ("Network device no longer exists"). After playing the LAN Team vs.
Developers game for awhile and validating that neither the App's code nor
the Network configurations are to blame, I'm almost ready to throw in the
towel.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

TIA,

Scott Parker

Hi Scott,

We had the same problem.  At first I modified my error handler to
automatically handle DOS error 55,  Purchasing Blinker will solve your
problem, guaranteed!!!.

If i remember correctly I added this to errorsys.prg

 if ( e:genCode == EG_OPEN .and. e:osCode == 5 )
 NetErr(.t.)
 return (.f.)         // NOTE
 end

It's just a work arround ...
