    Unanswered: Pervasive v8.5/v7.0 compatibility issue.

    I support a legacy app based on PSQL 7 btrieve. Recently, the client installed PSQL v8.5 with the default v8.x file formats without checking with me. Since then, they have experienced a lot of "traceback" errors which kick them out of the app. Does anyone know if the switch to v8.x formats could be the cause of the increased number of fatal errors?

    File format of the data files shouldn't cause problems especially if the files were not recreated. PSQL won't convert an existing file to a new format unless the user uses the rebuild utility (or BUTIL). The File Format setting is for new files.
    Are the errors PSQL / Btrieve errors? If so, post them. Is there anything in the PVSW.LOG file on the server?

    @adumange,
    You really should start a new thread. In that thread, post the symptoms you are having as well as the operating system you are installing on and the version of PSQL you are installing.
    I haven't seen some of the types of errors you describe in quite a while and don't want to suggest fixes until I know what version you are installing.
