Andy,
It's funny this question is coming up now on the forum. I was out for a few.
I had asked Protel
a few times why my database was so huge, never got a good answer till very
recent, and I might
add ONLY because I installed on a faster newer machine running NT SP6a.
I noticed that on installation with NT all of a sudden my design was
compacting every time
I closed it. This was not the case on WIN98. It seems that when installed on
WIN98 you need to
set this yourself on NT it automatically sets it to compact on close of
design. Now this may seem
like a simple thing for those who have been using Protel for awhile but it
was not veru apparent
to find where this fuction lived also there was nothing in help to find the
compact fuction.
Now for crashing, only on the NT install do I see issues, Protel stated I
need to install an older
version of the OBDC drivers an dI will not have any problems.
I really want to use NT for now.
Has any one had any problems with OBDC drivers and NT ???
Thanks
Bob Wolfe
