I think so. I know the DOS version uses the BTrieve driver software
when starting up. The Windows version needs the BTrieve DLL.
But I did not yet manage to use it myself to extract the data.
Please let me know if someone knows how to do it.
Can it be done via ODBC ? Normally ODBC needs a DDF file. But
the data in Brother's Keeper are *.DT5 files.
BTRHLP18 is a Btrieve tool that can show the DT5 files, so they
are genuine BTrieve files. But when I rename the DT5 file to
DDF, it does not work ...
What is the DDF anyway ? Is it just a description of where to
find the data files ?
Any help would be useful.
To my knowledge, the BTrieve version is 5.1
