WGE 9.61 as a service won't start properly

WGE 9.61 as a service won't start properly

WGE 9.61 as a service won't start properly

I have two computers.  A & B.  A has the data and B connects to it via UNC.  We just upgrade pervasive from 9.1 to 9.6 and had used the PVSW.exe tool to get the workgroup engine to run as a service.  This allowed computer B to connect to computer A without needing computer A to be logged in to Windows.

After the upgrade the A computer Pervasive service starts but I don't see w3dbsmgr running and computer B cannot connect.  If I run start the workgroup engine so I see the pre-load icon then computer B can connect.  

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get the run pervasive as a service to actually run pervasive?

RE: WGE 9.61 as a service won't start properly

Is there anything in the PVSW.LOG?  
PSQL v9.1 required the PVSW.EXE to run as a service but I believe 9.6x doesn't require it.  9.6x was a special release for Sage products and I thought it had it's own service configuration in the PTKSETUP.INI.

I'll have a look in the log and see if I can see the PTKSETUP.INI file.  Thank you.
