Hello Experts,

I could attach ESE database file with followings..

#define _DATPATH "path to db file"

	jet_err = JetGetDatabaseFileInfo(_DATPATH, &db_page_size, sizeof(db_page_size), JET_DbInfoPageSize);
	if (jet_err != JET_errSuccess) {
		return;
	}

	jet_err = JetSetSystemParameter( NULL, NULL, JET_paramDatabasePageSize, db_page_size, NULL);
	if (jet_err != JET_errSuccess) {
		return;
	}

	jet_err = JetSetSystemParameter( NULL, NULL, JET_paramRecovery, 0, "Off");
	if (jet_err != JET_errSuccess) {
		return;
	}

	jet_err = JetCreateInstance(&instance, "instance");
	if (jet_err != JET_errSuccess) {
		return;
	}

	jet_err = JetInit(&instance);
	if (jet_err != JET_errSuccess) {
		JetTerm(instance);
		return;
	}

	jet_err = JetBeginSession(instance, &sesid, 0, 0);
	if (jet_err != JET_errSuccess) {
		JetTerm(instance);
		return;
	}

	jet_err = JetAttachDatabase( sesid, _DATPATH, JET_bitDbReadOnly);
	if (jet_err != JET_errSuccess) {
		JetEndSession(sesid, 0);
		JetTerm(instance);
		return;
	}

Open in new window


But if I tried to open the file that was dirty shutdowned (Application clashed),
JetAttachDatabase returns -550(JET_errDatabaseDirtyShutdown).

I set  JET_paramRecovery to "Off", because if it was set, JetInit failed.

How can I recovery that kind of "dirty shutdowned" file in my program ?
I know eseutil.exe will do that, but I want to do in my apps.

Any advice welcome !

When JetAttachDatabase returns -550, I would system() out a call to eseutil.exe and then re-try the JetAttachDatabase call.
Database utilities do a lot of checking prior to clearing the dirty bits. You don't want to go there.

Hello,

Thank you for advice.

I tried eseutil.exe manually and it works.
But I got some problems..

 - I could not find out 32 bit eseutil.exe that works with the database
   file that was created by Win 7 32bit.
   I tried to open ESE database file that was created with latest Win 7
   32bit system and that was not close clearly. I used eseutil.exe
   that was included in Exchange Server 2007 x86, and got version
   mismatch error. I manually /r(recovery) and /p(repair) with Win7 x64
   and eseutil.exe that was included in Exchange Server 2010 x64
   and works fine.
   I want to work my program with 32/64 bit both. So I need eseutils.exe
   that works with latest 32bit Windows created ESE database file.

 - When I call eseutil.exe with /p (repair), dialogue box pop-upped.
   I don't know how to run without that dialogue box.

Do you have any idea ?
Or is there any way to do with C++ (JetInit()...etc) ?

Any suggestions welcome.

The only database I've worked with at all much is mysql. My experience there is that it should not matter whether you have 32 or 64 bit program. But if the software revision has changed then you need to run a once-only utility to upgrade the database.
Unless you really really know what you're doing, I would stay away from trying to fix it programatically.

Hello,

I found the solution.

JetInit() could Recovery automatically and silently.

Thank you for the hint.
