Brequest.exe & Win95

My "c:\windows\winstart.bat" has the "c:\windows\brequest.exe" line in it.  When Win95 boots,
I see it load, without errors.

However, when I run Connectview (an application which
requires it) , it says that it couldn't initialize because
brequest.exe was not loaded.

I verify such by going to a dos window and typing
mem/c/p and see that brequest is indead not loaded.

I doubt that this is truely a Netware problem

Contents of CONFIG.SYS
Device=c:\windows\himem.sys /testmem:off
rem Device=c:\windows\emm386.exe RAM
rem DOS=HIGH
rem Install c:\windows\brequest.exe
 
Contents of AUTOEXEC.BAT
C:\PROGRA~1\NORTON~1\NAVDX.EXE /Startup
@echo off
Set Temp=C:\TEMP
Set TMP=C:\TMP
path c:\windows;c:\windows\command;c:\dos\coms;C:\Novell\Client32
rem scandisk c:
lh doskey /insert
smartdrv c
Set NWLANGUAGE=ENGLISH

I have tried it without these TSRs.  I have also tried it with a different Antivirus scanner.  All results are the same.

PC is P133 with 64MB ram

- Make sure that WBTRCALL.DLL is located in the Windows 95 SYSTEM
   subdirectory.
- Is it version 5.15c or later
- Is Connectview a DOS based or windows based

In the Windows directory there is a file called BTI.INI that has the heading of [Btrieve] and a line
     beneath this heading that reads Local=

     The Local= line must be set to Yes for ConnectView to run---i.e.:

     [Btrieve]
     Local=Yes
