Create Folder Share On Remote Computer
I have an application where I am providing the user the ability to
select or create a folder on a domain, using SHBrowseForFolder. When
the user selects/creates a folder on a remote computer, it returns the
UNC path of that folder.

Using ADSI IADsFileShare, I would like to create that share, but the
..Path property seems to reject the UNC. Is there a way of converting
that UNC to the logical drive path or some other way of setting the
path in order to Set the Share?

Much Thanks.

How To Access The Database From Another Computer..

i should've been posting this one in the newbie category.. but still, this has something to do with databases so im placing it here. anyway.. just wanna ask.. how can i access the foxpro database, the backend of my vb program, from another computer in a network, or from the server to be exact? should i be specifying the path? what would then the SourceDB path be? or is it treated differently when the database is from another computer? i havent tried my program in a network though that's why im a little confused about it. tnx.

i hav here the sample code btw in connecting to the dtabase which i dont know the SourceDB path..

    Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
    cn.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    cn.Open "Driver={Microsoft Visual FoxPro Driver};" & _
           "SourceType=DBC;" & _
           "SourceDB= ... dbase.dbc;" & _

    SQL = "SELECT * FROM table1"
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    rs.Open SQL, cn, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic, adCmdText

Point Me To The Correct Direction On This? (Share Diferent Computer Processors)
Processors Clustering
Does anyone knows how would i biuld something to Share diferent computer processors over a lan and over inet?

All i would like to, was that a 3D based program uses more then one computer to make all calcs, i'm talking about a real huge calc processing to share the processors over the network will help a lot but i realy would like to share over inet if possible. I could link 3 univs on this project.

It's not a money earning project or a conquest. Me and 20 more colegues of mine are working on this but we need more calc speed when building the final work.

With 780 computers we plan to take a render time of 189 - 250 days

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

RTF And Access Database: Works On One Computer, Doesn't On Another!
Briefly: a functioning app, when deployed to other computers, works fine EXCEPT that the rtf control doesn't retrieve any data from the underlying database.

My VB6 program saves the contents of an RTF box into a memo field, in an Access database using ado.

A week ago, I packaged the app and installed it on another computer. The application runs fine, it prompts me for my userid and password (these are both text boxes, NOT rtf), it launches okay, the form and all its contents are good except the rtf box: it is empty.

So everything seems to work fine except the rtf control, which is not retrieving data from access. So I am guessing there is some file which I must install on this second computer, so it can use the rtf control? Something the Packaging Wizard missed maybe?

This second computer runs several other non-RTF apps which I have designed; it does NOT have VB6 installed on it; it's oeprating systems is windows 2000.

Thanks for your help!

VB-Access Simultaneously Update
Hi Everybody

I have developed an Application in VB6 with MS Access as backend. I am using ADO2.8.

I have a scenario where i check for a value in database. If it is FALSE then i change it to TRUE and allow the user to proceed. After the process is completed i change the value back to FALSE. User can't proceed if the value is TRUE.

But if two users starts the process same time my application is allowing both the users to do the process Simultaneously. I want to restrict the users so that tow users can't do that operation at the sametime.

Writing To Access And Allowing Access To Share Its Information With MySQL
Hello everyone!

I am trying to think of the best way to do this, I'm going to create a vb application which can write to an access database and can also view the files of the access database. Now i'm also wanting all that data which is going into the access database to be able to be accessed via the web. I don't want to use ASP, I want to use PHP and mySQL. Now would I use ADO or DOA or what? i'm new to databases! So does this seem right? I want somehow to make access "share" or send all of its information to a mySQL database so php can access the data! Any suggestions or comments?

Thanks for listening!

Is It Possible To Share A Database?

The chat program checks a database which is stored on a shared folder on my home network at regular intervals using a timer.
But when i try to run two instances of this program the second instance says it is already opened exclusively by another user.

Does anyone know how to alter the permissions of this database to make it publically viewable?

How To Share A DAO Database
Hi Friends...

I am currently working on a networkable version of my company's flag ship product and I am running into some difficulties opening the recordsets in shared mode.

I need to be able to access certain recordsets from numerous instances of my program simultaneously. In other words, considering a typical network setup with three computers connected to a central server, I am placing the DB on the server and each of the three computers will access that DB at times simultaneously.

here is an example of how I am opening a recordset in my non-networkable version: (assume all variables and objects are already set)

Code:set rstFirm = DB.OpenRecordset ("tblFirmData", dbOpenDynaset)

I know I need to throw a dbOptimistic in there somewhere, but don't know where. Or maybe I need to do it differently...I don't know. Hopefully you do!

I know DAO sucks, but there is nothing I can do about that right now, so bear with me. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Database Can Not Be Share Through Network
hello guys,
i have a share database problem between one server and one client
(cross cable connection)
my connection is like this:

'client connection
MYDatabase = Server_path & "" & "my" & Format$(Now(), "ddmmyyyy") & ".mdb"
'my_cn.CursorLocation = adUseServer
my_cn.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
my_cn.Mode = adModeShareDenyNone 'this is what i added
my_cn.Open MYDatabase, Admins

'server connection
OWNMYDatabase = App.Path & "" & "my" & Format$(Now(), "ddmmyyyy") & ".mdb"
'own_my_cn.CursorLocation = adUseServer
own_my_cn.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
own_my_cn.Mode = adModeShareDenyNone 'this is what i added
own_my_cn.Open OWNMYDatabase, Admins

i have refer to the MSDN and what i found is by changing the MODE, i
should be able to share my database among two applicatio. but this is
wrong cause after i implement, i get this message:

'client PC get this message
Error Opening
The database has been placed in a state by user 'Admin' on machine
'WIN'. that prevents it from being opened or locked.
'WIN is my server PC

i shouldn't get this error after implement the "adModeShareDenyNone",right
Why i still get this error?

i close my connection and set my_cn = Nothing after i have update record.

i think most properly is there was a time where both client and server
open/edit database at the same time. that is something can not be
Access should be able to handle this kind of thing.

i even try try on the ACCESS->Tools->security->User and group Permissions...
i add new group name according to my network workgroup's name.
i try other method and trying for few weeks already. still can not.

can someone tell me how to solve this problem????i can provide you
information about my application, if this is not enough.

i in big trouble.......

I Need A Database Formula To Share Data Between Two Databases.
I need a formula I would use to be able to retrieve data from one database field to another?
I'm am using Microsoft Works (2000) Database. I can retrieve information from one field & have it show results & do functions etc. in another field, within in one database, without any difficulty, ... but ....
I would like to be able to retrieve information from one database field to a whole other new database field.
  Example: "Database #1" & "Database #2", I would like to know a formula to type into a field in "Database #2" that would retrieve information from a field from "Database #1".
  I have no trouble figuring out how to move data within one database.(formulas, functions etc.) I have just ran out of available fields in "Database #1" & the only way I can think of to expand, to the space I need, is to exchange or retrieve data from a 2nd database or from Microsoft works spreadsheet.

How To Let NET 1.1 And NET 2.0 Web Apps Share The Same Login Page (share The Same Cookie)?
We have two servers. Server A hosts .NET 2.0 web apps, Server B hosts .NET 1.1 web app. The login page is a .NET 2.0 web app on Server A. So when users access Server B's web app, the web app will redirect the user to the login page on the Server A. If login successfully, server B's web app will have to read the cookie created by the login page and see if user is authenticated. However, I found the .NET 1.1 web app cannot read the cookie created by the login page(Request.IsAuthenticated always return false).
I set the web.config on all app (both servers) with the same validation and encryption keys, and set the decryption attribute on .NET 2.0 app to "3DES". But it's still not working.
Any suggestions?
