I currently have a vb3 app that uses netware calls using nwnetapi.dll to log into a server, copy files and log out. I tried running this app under Windows NT and it fails to map a drive and log in. I get an error "device unavailable". Is it because nwnetapi.dll is not supported under NT. If so how can I rectify the situation.

Nwnetapi.dll is part of the netware client. I presume the version to be used is a 32 bits version. Anyway, for REAL netware programming, download the Netware SDK. The url is:

http://developer.novell.com/sdk/sdk.htm (maybe ending with html, check it out).

Below the splitted up SDK-files (first you see it as one huge file, nice for downloadmanagers, and then you see parts of 8 MB or something), you'll find a link to documentation on how to use it.

If the site asks for a login etc. follow the path to registering. It is FREE and very fast, so go get it !!

If you live in Netherlands, you can get it from me (an entire SDK CD).

But anyway, if you wish to go any further, start using VB4 or higher, cause VB3 is 16 bit.

I hope this get's you started (p.s. you may also use MS-Office 97 for your 32 bit VB code, it makes hardly any difference in exploring this system).
