9219 is "cannot access directory". That sounds like a rights issue or,
possibly, a problem caused by having the firewall on on the XP machines.
You might try moving the database to one of the XP machines and see if
that helps.

Some clients use a windows 98 as server for a BDE database. The

they have upgraded their XP to SP2. Now, they get the error 9219
while connecting a second XP (once one of the XP is already
connected). It looks like the BDE is no longer able to share the LCK
file found on the server, or something similar ...

Does anybody has had similar experience ?

Re:Re: Error 9219 - XP stations with 98 server

I ran into some issues with mixing NT and 9x-based machines quite a while
ago. I can't remember the details, but the research I did said that in an
environment where you're mixing NT-based machines (NT/2000/XP) with 9x
machines and sharing a file with multiple users, you need to use an NT-based
machines as the file server. You should switch things so that one of the XP
machines is the server, and see if that solves the problem.

absolutely correct.. using the 9x machine as a server creates many "lock file"
issues..

Re:Re: Error 9219 - XP stations with 98 server

Steve,
I am familiar with the problems of having mixed 9x and NT clients
trying to access tables on a 9x server. Just curious if you have seen
the same problem with all NT clients and a 9x server?
What is interesting here is that he had no problems until they
installed SP 2 on the XP clients so it sounds like he was not having
any problem with all XP clients and a 98 server until SP2 was installed.

yes.. from the Paradox side, we've seen this many times.. as simple as one
NT/XP client and one 98 "server"/workstation.. and systems with mixed
stations, and systems with just NT/XP stations..

I noticed that, too.. it *is* unusual.. more like the other XP/BDE problem..
but I've given up on thinking anything makes sense anymore <g>
