[THIN] Re: Locked files in FoxPro published applications

And then you call Citrix and they say its a Microsoft problem...

 

And then you realise you simply should've asked this list ;)

But if you talk to the OS people they will say it is a hardware problem and
then when you show them clearly how it is none of those they all say it is a
Citrix problem! J

Its not because the developers have forgotten to open a database/table in
shared mode is it?

 

Or that when they've implemented a lock for an update they've used a
database lock rather than a record lock

 

Because of course, app developers *never* get it wrong, its always the OS'
fault.

We have a strange issue with a FoxPro application. From time to time some
DBF files are locked and from FileMon I can see "Sharing Violation" error.

Developers says that there is no error in the application and that it works
when it run on users' PCs.

It's just enough to log off all application's users and everything works
again normally for a while (sometimes an hour, sometimes a day)

I have come across Microsoft article
<http://support.microsoft.com/kb/818528/>
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/818528/ were it is suggested to change
Windows behavior to maintain the data structures per users instead of per
computer but I'm not sure if it helps as we don't have such a problem with
any other application. I don't want to change the setting yet because I
don't want to screw up other published applications on our servers.

Server configuration: Citrix Metaframe XP, Windows 2000 SP4

Do you have any idea?
