Need to call dblib (16-bit) from win32s Win 3.1 app

Anybody got any code to do the 16/32 bit address conversion?

Thanks.

Not sure you really need to do any conversions. I develop on NT
and call the 16bit libraries. The only thing I have had to worry
about is defining the DBPROC as a Near *. On the other hand I am
developing 16bit apps on the 32bit platform, so maybe that is
why it is easier......

 
 
 

1. 16-bit SQL*Plus/16-bit ORA7WIN.DLL/windows 3.1/TOOLHELP.DLL/BOOOOM

Pardon my general ignorance of things Oracle, but I would greatly
appreciate any hints or experience of people who have had a similiar
problem to my own.  If any.

I am using 16 bit SQL*Plus on windows 3.1 to talk to an Oracle server via
TCP/IP using a dial up PPP connection.  I have other applications
(non-Oracle) that happily navigate their way over the PPP connection but
SQL*Plus results in a thoroughly ambigous segment violation in
TOOLHELP.DLL.  If I use the Oracle TNSPing utility to ping the oracle
server and as a side effect cause the PPP connection to be raised I can
subsequently use SQL*Plus with no problems.  This makes for a simple work
around but is frustrating to communicate to all our clients and makes us
look a little goofy!  Some one needs to introduce a wire-a-beer service to
any pub in the world, then I could reward any one kind enough to help me.

Thanks in advance.
