RE: [fhctech] BI & NA VR Index generate run-time error on W98 P-t-P ntwk
- If it is a registry problem, then it should be possible to re-install the software from the WORKSTATION. It may be necessary to copy the database onto the server redundantly from the workstation. If you use an installation tracker, you can discover exactly what files and registry tags are affected so the same changes could be made at other workstations.

Yes that is the common error. The instructions say you can load it on a
network but it does not work. I called SLC and no matter how hard I tried
to get through to someone who cared enough to help, I could not. The party
line was simply, "we do not support networks".
I tried to explain to them that it was not a network problem, but a problem
with the viewer program for the 1881 census. However, the N-word kept
coming up and I got nowhere.
I do not know if anyone else has had any success, but it appears to be a
registry problem. If you or anyone else has had success using the 1881
census over a network, please let us know.
- Process is as follows:On each workstation:Load the viewer from the CDRun the Resource viewer and install the first CD from each set.Close the viewer.On the Server (which may also be a workstation on a peer network:Substitute your own drive letter directory names as appropriate.Make a directory eg D:\1881Copy each of the CDs in turn from the CD drive F: to D:1881.Allow any duplicate files to overwrite.Using Windows Explorer, right click on directory d:\1881Select Properties - Sharing and set Shared as, Share Name=1881Set Access type to Full (This is the key point!!)On each workstation:Press Start-Run and run RegeditSelect HKey_Local_MachineSelect SoftwareSelect Family HistorySelect ViewerIn the right hand pane click on CD Drive and change the Drive letter to "Network" and press enterSelect 1881 British CensusIn the right hand pane click on DataPath and change to file:"\\Server\1881\bi1881\" and press enterRepeat for 1881 British Census National IndexClose RegeditRun the Resource File ViewerThat works successfully on my networksNow will somebody PLEASE tell me how to stop your postings being unreadable because they try to force my EMail client to connect to the Internet.
