Pervasive SQL run-time error 75 path/file access error

Installing an application in Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server. The application uses Pervasive SQL client which I think is having problems when the users logs into the Terminal Server. When the user runs the application, get the error Run-time error 75 path/file access error. The only thing I could find close to this in Google is that the log file for Psql writes to C:\ and sure enough, the user doesn't have write access to C:\. I have no idea how to change this with PSQL.

First off, let's make sure that it's pervasive returning that error.  
Open the Pervasive Function Executor and open "C:\PVSW\DEMODATA\CLASS.MKD" (or any Btrieve/Pervasive data file for that matter). Does that return an error?  If not, then the 75 is coming from the application is is an application issue not a database issue.

I followed your directions and I don't think I got an error. I'm not familar with this tool, and it opens what appears to be a hex editor. I'm I suppose to press exectute to do something and test for the error?

Actually, if you get a "hex editor" on the screen, then the file opened correctly and you are looking at the binary result from the Btrieve API call.  If you don't get an error with Function Executor, then the problem is in the application.
