: can anyone tell me what's wrong with my dbase IV ?
: Since I installed it on a Pentium I get the error-message
: 'File already open' everytime I try to index an open
: dbase file.
: I've already tryed every possible setting off the Ext & Exp memory
: but nothing seems to work.
: This error isn't documented in the help files or any other book I own
Computers with a clock speed of 50MHz or greater changed the way the
clock tick is handled, part of gaining a little extra boost in speed.
Unfortunately, dBASE IV (some versions, specifically 1.5 and earlier)
use the clock tick as originally incorporated to manage open file
handles. When the hardward functionality changed, this management stopped
A later sub-version of dBASE IV 1.5 included changes that adapted to this
change in hardware functionality. You can get a copy of this by contacting
Borland's Customer Service department at 408-461-9000.
