Windows XP locks up when running butil -stop

Windows XP locks up when running butil -stop

A new winddows XP freezes when unloading btrieve (brequest) with butil -stop.  This does not happen on all XP's, just the new one we bought this week.  

RE: Windows XP locks up when running butil -stop

A few questions:
- What version of Btrieve are you using?  
- How do you fix the freeze?  
- Is there any activity on the system?  
- Does your version of BREQUEST support the "/u" parameter (to unload it)?  If so, does it show the same behavior?

We are only running this one program on the workstation.  A lot is going on on the server.
Will try the /u parameter when unloading brequest (not sure about this.
