Clear PDOXUSRS.NET but still can't access
Posted on 2006-04-10
I have purchased a paradox db and have had no problems with it so far. My network went down while I was in the db and now I keep getting the application err msg, "Too many users logged in." when I try to access it. I understand a little about the pdoxusrs.net file in that you can delete it and then it clears the users and then you can log in. The application developer has even included a lockcln.exe file that does this for you.
I have deleted the pdoxusrs.net on my local machine and also saw one on the share where the data is stored so I deleted that one also. I then try to get in the db and still get the too many users error.
I'm not sure if its related but ever since this problem first occurred, I close the application after the too many users error and I get another error, "Access violation at address 00000000. Read of address 0000000."
I know what most people will say, "call the application provider." I would but I only pd 2K for the db app and they want $500 to answer this one question because it is now out of the warranty period. Just thought I may be able to get a $500 answer on EE.
