32-Bit Btrieve and Thunking

32-Bit Btrieve and Thunking

Post by Chad Smit » Fri, 25 Jul 1997 04:00:00



Can anyone explain to me exactly how thunking is supposed to work with
btrieve?  I would like to know which components are required (including file
size and dates that work for you), which components should _not_ be used,
and any success stories that you may have.  I am having a devil of a time
understanding this.  I think I have a pretty good grasp on the 16-bit stuff,
but the 32-bit throws me for a loop.

I am trying to use the 32-bit requestors to attach to MKDE's on NetWare and
NT servers.

Chad:
I assume client is 95 or nt wkstn
if the application is 16bit and the client platform is 32bit then
thunking needs to be implemented. it doesn't matter whether the server
is NW or NT.
set your bti.ini as follows:

[Btrieve]
Tasks=30        <or whatever>
Local=No
Requester=No
Thunk=Yes

I use Btrieve on both platforms version 6.15 with he MOST current
upgrades and |ENSURE| that the .dlls are congruent with the engine.
this is easy for us as ALL files (app/database) except bti.ini reside on
the server(s) [bti.ini in the %windir% dirctory]

1. thunking (calling 16 bit dll's from 32 bit app)

Hi there,

Can anybody give me any information or tell me where I can find any on
thunking (calling 16 bit dll's from my delphi 2.0 app). A good example would
be the best.

Thanks in advance.
