Here is my setup...
XP with PdoxWIN 9.0 accessing data across a Lantastic 8.01 network at a DOS
6.2 with PdoxDOS 4.5 machine. This worked fine until I got the XP machine.
Now if the DOS machine is up and running and I try to access data with the
XP machine, I get this type message(from Lantastic?) "...unable to delete
PDOXUSRS.LCK on f:\blahj\blah\blah..." I have tried deleting ALL *.lck and
*.net files while no paradox is running...no help. If DOS is not running
paradox, I can delete the *lck files in the data directory and run fine, but
then DOS fails to run. So one or the other can work but not concurrently.
Data is on DOS at c:\pdox\applicat\data with *NET at c:\netlocks
DOS C: is mapped to F: on network
DOS Private is c:\pdox\applicat but it is writing lock files to BOTH
XP working is set to f:\pdox\applicat\data with *.NET f:\netlocks
I don't understand why Lantastic is trying to delete the *.LCK file and why
This should work, but I wonder if it is not the NTFS vs. FAT16 that is the
Anyone have any ideas?
