dos btrieve

dos btrieve

dos btrieve

  I'm using btrieve version 4.10 Single User License. It's currently on a Novell 2.0.14 and running a warehouse program (which can be run over the network). My question is.. Is it possible to run btrieve on win98 and if yes, how ;) I'll to see if someone really uses such old software like this... (or remembers how to use it)

  Thanks in advance,
  Stanislav Zahariev

RE: dos btrieve

If you're loading BTRIEVE.EXE, you should still be able to do that for a Win98 machine once you get into the DOS prompt.  Same should apply to BREQUEST.  That being said, Btreive v4.10 is very, very old (even older than Win3.1) and may not work with Win98.  
What error are you getting?

RE: dos btrieve

I manage to get it working over the LPT port, but not over the LAN (UTP - TCP/IP). I don't get any error... It starts and loads into the memory (mem /c /p shows it). It looks good when starting it, but ain't working. It works only when I use it over the LTP.
