Need help to solve Btrieve Error 91

Need help to solve Btrieve Error 91

Need help to solve Btrieve Error 91


I am working on a project

Environment is as follows :

Btrieve server version : 6.10e
Novell server version  : 4.11
Btrieve client version : 6.15
Novell client version  : 4.18
Os                     : Win-2000

I am using C language to access the Btrieve data files. While opening the file i am getting error 91.

I have given correct file path.
Server as well as client are active.
Bspxcom and Brouter are also loaded.

What should i do at client side so that i will not get this error. At server side i can't do anything because it's live server.

I guess there is some problem in client requester and Btrieve server communication.

Any help will be highly appreciated.



RE: Need help to solve Btrieve Error 91

The status 91 can mean a couple of things.  You didn't say if the app was DOS or Windows based.  If it's Win32 based, you'll have problems with the Btrieve v6.10 on the server. Btrieve v6.10 did not have a 32 bit client and the 6.15 client can't connect to a 6.10 server.  If it's a DOS app, it might work, but you'll need to make sure BREQUEST.EXE is being used.  
Btrieve 6.10 or 6.15 were never tested with Windows 2000 so that could be causing some of the problems too.  The Status 91 usually indicates a communication problem.  Can you use RCONSOLE from this Windows 2000 client?  If not, it's probably an SPX problem.
