Thread #11010 over network
Wed, Apr 10 2019 2:11 PMPermanent Link


So, I have this situation where my EXE is running on a network and getting the #11010 error, which I believe means it just can't find the data files.

The problem I'm having is that it's working fine on some networks and not on others. On some of the others I cranked up the users to admin level, just to make sure, with no change.

I'm not sure what this can be. The data directory is set by taking the EXE and adding "\data\" to it.

Ages ago I stoped doing that sort of approach for anything other than local applications.  My guess would be that the drive on the machine the .exe is on isn't mapped to the drive your data is sitting on - on the client's machine.

What I switched to was a simple text file holding the unc path for the data - pretty much guaranteed unless the admins change machine names or some such.

If you are using Mapped Drive Letters on Windows 10 change to UNC File Path Name for database folder location.

Google the issue.

Thanks, guys! That makes a lot more sense than trying to figure out why it's not working.

Are you using the full path of the executable name, or *just* the executable name ?  If you're using the full path, then the only way that you would see an #11010 "table not found" error is if a mapped drive is not functioning properly, or pointing to the wrong location.

Er...if I use a UNC...


I get an error: Database name '\\HITCHCOCK\MyApp\data\' is not valid.

Too fancy for my (very old) app? I'm using the latest DBISAM I can for Delphi 2010, which I think is 4.48.

Never mind. Just a bug. Thanks again, guys.
