Btrieve Not Loaded

Btrieve Not Loaded

Btrieve Not Loaded

Running Btrieve 6.15 on Win/NT server using Citrix Metaframe for all users including local users. Want to run local users directly from application Win/NT server but keep getting BTRIEVE NOT LOADED error.

Seems it trying to load Btrieve from work stations, even though the bti.ini & cfg indicate local=no.

Where is out setup wrong?

RE: Btrieve Not Loaded

Is it the DOS requester you are using?

RE: Btrieve Not Loaded


No. I have two Dell Servers. One running Win/NT as the application server and the other is Citrix Metaframe.

Have 15 users locally who have to go through Citrix because we cannot get by this Btrieve Not Loaded message. Btrieve is on the App server but this error points to Btrieve trying to load from the local workstation.

Have 4 remote sites in Florida.
Thank you for responding. Hope you can help us.


RE: Btrieve Not Loaded

We've come across "Btrieve is not loaded ourselves" from time to time - we have an app that uses the dos requester on the workstation, one that uses the wbtrdrv.dll (or whatever it's called) and one that uses the ODBC.

With the DOS requester it's more about configuration and PATH settings and the like.

Is the pervasive client software installed on the users PC's?  

RE: Btrieve Not Loaded

Is the path mapped as a network drive?  I know we are not able to use the network path, i.e. \\server\sol4.  We have to use S:\sol4 (or whatever).

Good luck!  Took me 2 1/2 days to get Btrieve and Solomon running through a Citrix server (mainly my lack of Citrix/Terminal Services knowledge).
