AR# 6592: 4.2i Foundation - Btrieve incompatibility with Macola 7.5
4.2i Foundation - Btrieve incompatibility with Macola 7.5
Keywords: Macola, Btrieve, Foundation
General Description: Foundation does not work if the system has Macola 7.5 database software installed. Macola software renames and moves a number of DLLs; subsequently, Foundation cannot find these DLLs.
The following files were renamed in the WINNT/SYSTEM32 directory, and new files were placed into the WINNT/SYSTEM directory:
WBTRCALL.DLL WBTRVRES.DLL W32MKRC.DLL
(NOTE: The order of installation is unimportant.)
The Macola 7.5 installs the Btrieve Version 7 client, which is not compatible with Xilinx Btrieve version 6. However, the Macola 7.5 server supports the Macola Version 6 client; therefore, you may delete the files installed by Macola SQL server and replace them with Btrieve Version 6 files.
