pervasive /lytec issues. (noob)

pervasive 8.7 ncd lytec 2004 sp3/no sp
please  bear with me i an new to DB management but i am not ignorant entirely :O)
i was just contacted by a small doctors office that is using lytec and pervasive. his pc's were seriously in adequate and i fixed that with ram and g band wireless.

they have DB problems. there are two systems both run win xp home.one had pervasive 8.0/lytec no sp, one had pervasive 8.7/lytec 04 sp3.

in somebodys (not i)attempt to update the 8.0 to 8.7 the database was fuxored. lytec now will not load gives an error 1 "error creating database file..  then error 3012 error opening database list.

i got the pervasives to communicate with each other, they wouldnt even do that) but now the newly updated lytec refuses to do anything but show these two errors.

im at a loss and the techs at medipro doesnt like to support lytec 2004 much and have few answers for me.

the office is small and doesnt want to pay the 5 grand+ to update to the newer lytec.

sorry so long but i sure appreciate help and or opinions  and much thanks in advance.

I took this from the Pervasive manual - hope it helps.


3012: Local engine is not accessible to the MicroKernel router
Access to the local engine is not possible because it is not loaded or could not be launched. You can receive this status code if you try to access a local file on a client and you do not have a Workgroup engine installed or if you try to access a local file on a server and the Server engine is not running.

If you have only a server engine installed and your Pervasive Event Log (PVSW.LOG) contains Status Code 3012 warning entries, perform the following steps:

    To Turn Off Local Engine support (for clients and workstations only):

Click Start->Programs->Pervasive.SQL V8->Control Center.
Expand Pervasive.SQL V8 Engines and expand the desired database.
Expand Configuration, then expand Client, and click on Access.
In the right hand frame, double-click on Use Local MicroKernel Engine, change the Current value to Off, and click OK.
In the right-hand frame, double-click on Use Remote MicroKernel Engine, change the Current value to On, and click OK.
In the right-hand frame, double-click Target Engine, change Current to Server only, and click OK.
In the left-hand frame, expand Client-16 bit and click on Access.
In the right-hand frame, double-click Use Local MicroKernel Engine, change Current value to Off, and click OK.
Make sure the Use Remote MicroKernel Engine value is set to on and that the remote engine is set to accept remote requests.
Exit the configuration utility and restart the engines for the new settings to take effect.
