Btrieve Error 94 with ArcServe 5.01g

I have a NW4.1 server, and it WAS running ArcServe 5.01g sucesfully, until I updated the server with the P6 patch and every other update I could find. Now, when I run the ArcServe Manager program and try to access any of the databases (client, tape, jobs...)it returns a Btrieve Error 94. I have W95 and I'm using the 32-bit Novell CLient. I'm also using Btrieve 6.10c on the server. I can sucesfully run SBACKUP and restore (I'm pretty sure sbackup uses the btrieve database system) so I think it's a specific problem with ArcServe & Netware.
I've tried reversing the update process without sucess.
Any help would be appriciated.

scarter,

Okay, there are a few things that can give you an error 94 (permission error).

1) In some versions, you'll get this error incorrectly if you open a file exclusively, then attempt to open it with another program.

2) In some versions, you'll get this error if the file is flagged Read Only.  The solution is to flag the file Read/Write and use directory rights (Read & File Scan) to help maintain security.

3) You can get this error if you don't have rights to the file, or if the program is attempting to pass only the directory name to BTrieve, instead of the full filename.

4) Did you update your client software when you updated your server?  Error 94 can occur if your client software has a flag saying that the BTrieve software is loading locally.

5) Finally, mixing BTrieve for DOS and a BTrieve NLM doesn't work, and can give you error 94's also.

Hope this helps!
