DOS Btrieve Help

DOS Btrieve Help

DOS Btrieve Help

I have a DOS program that loads the command "Btrieve" before it starts.  

I recently purchased Pervasive's Workstation. Now I get btrieve "already loaded" when the btrieve command is executed and a btrieve "NOT loaded" when I start the program.

I tried disabling all Pervasive calls with msconfig in the start up areas.  I must be leaving something in because I still have this problem.  Any suggestions?

RE: DOS Btrieve Help

With the new Workstation engine, you'll want to load the BTRBOX95.EXE program instead of the Btrieve command.  I believe this is all you need to change.
