Btrieve v7.0 does not automatically start up, periodically

Btrieve v7.0 does not automatically start up, periodically

Btrieve v7.0 does not automatically start up, periodically

I have btrieve 7 on Win NT 4 SP 6a. Every once in a while it will give me following error.

"The Btrieve v7.0 for Windows NT (Server Edition) service terminated with service-specific error 11"
This is just a fresh installation. This computer doesnt have many software at this point.

I have searched a lot for this error but i could not find any answer. It looks like this is not a very common error and the worse thing is that it is an intermittent error.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.


RE: Btrieve v7.0 does not automatically start up, periodically

Thanks for not responding ppl ;)
anyways.. i found the solution or i should say the probable cause of this error and i am writing it here so it may help someone else too.
Basically what i did was that i reinstalled all applications noting at what time the error occurs and so i found that as soon as i found MDAC 2.5 the btrieve service starts to give errors. Now at the same time my production machine had the same configuration with same versions of all the software but there was no error there. Now as i sat and looked back at everything i found that only difference is that on production machine we had installed MDAC 2.1 and then 2.1 sp1 and then 2.1 sp2 and then 2.5. Now as i reinstalled everything.. I did everything the same way BUT i installed MDAC 2.1 SP2 before installing MDAC 2.5 and there is no error since then... this may point to the cause and solution specific to my environment but may be it can help somebody else as well..
Have a good day everyone.. BYE....
