I need some explanation here. I am simply or I thought, trying to change some settings in my application so users don't have to manually go to the perfs application and change it themselves. First I want to change under pref->connection from Palm Modem US/Canada to Direct Serial. Second, under pref->Network, I want to change the Service from Aminet to WindowRAS. I have tried, at least I think I have tried everything under the sun to try to change these settings. Again, I don't need them changed globally, i.e. I don't need them set once my application exits. Anyhow using the functions in Connection Manager isn't enough, there isn't one to allow me to actually change the setting. All the NetLib* functions are hard as hell to understand and don't' work (most likely they do but I can't get them to) so I try to play my last card. I changed the setting I wanted manually. Then I figured out what databases were changed.
They were: Saved Preferences Unsaved Preferences ConnectionDB Networked Net Prefs So I made a copy of each of these database with the changes I make from the pref panel application. Then created a new emulator (so the changed I made were erased) and wrote an application that restored my version of the databases. In theory, the changes should have still been there. But they weren't. Can some one, for the love of GOD, please help or explain this to me. My company is about to commit me because I am swearing at my PC now. Does palm not want engineers to do this. Changing these settings should not drive me to insanity... Thanks for any hint, help, URL to explain this, ANY F*ing thing.....
