Re: NAS drive as a mapped drive for BRules

Thanks. That's where we bought the WD one. Hopefully they haven't burned the store down before we can get there to swap the WD for the Buffalo. Do you know for a fact that BRules! won't have issues with this or do we just try and hope?

NAS drive as a mapped drive for BRules

We had a WD NAS drive connected to a hub/router that we were running as a mapped drive for anyone connected to that hub/router. Both BR.exe's and data were on that mapped drive. It worked great. You could also use it as a "server" backup by changing your drive mappings to the NAS drive if ...

Re: PRINTER_LIST function on Windows 10

Increased the DIM statement solved the problem. Microsoft Office added the OneNote Printer at 138 characters only on the Windows 10 boxes. Thank you Microsoft.

Re: PRINTER_LIST function on Windows 10

The printers work in any other application.
I use PRINTER_LIST to include only certain printers for the user to select in the BR/WB applications.

Re: PRINTER_LIST function on Windows 10

Thanks. I logged out and logged back in as an Administrator and it worked again.
Logged out and logged back in as the user and it failed.
Any idea to what or where the user needs rights to in order to access the system file that holds the workstation printer info?

Re: PRINTER_LIST function on Windows 10

We only have two Windows 10 computers on WB/BR and they both started failing to show printers on Friday. No errors, just nothing showing up in the function list. Nothing was changed or added printer wise which is why I'm looking at Windows updates. I have a call into our IT support to see what updat...

PRINTER_LIST function on Windows 10

Suddenly on Thursday or Friday last week the PRINTER_LIST function on Windows 10 no longer returns workstation printer names in all versions of WB/BR. Still works on Windows 7.
Help?

Car Rental in Boston

An important note about renting a car... You can traverse Boston quite successfully on their subway system (known as the "T"). However, IF you plan to rent a car, it's gonna cost you dearly. You cannot self park at our hotel and the valet charge is $35 per day. Ouch! It's gone up from wha...

EXECUTE "CONFIG COLLATE ALTERNATE" works fine for me in 4.18i and it had better continue to work through all the new versions. It is the first line of all my WBConfig.sys files. The term "AlphaNumeric" in itself infers that Alpha appears before Numeric. In 4.18i I have reindexed ...

Uploading a .xml file to a FTP site from WB

I need to automate the posting of an .xml file created in WB directly into an FTP site.

Hopefully someone has already done this. Is there an FNGeorge function for this? (Just hoping!)

8.3 paths with ~

Back in the days when Windows gave us long file names and DOS didn't know what to do with them the "Docum~1" came to pass. I assumed Windows kept a cross reference table of both names. I don't know if it was dynamic or stayed assigned for the life of the path. "Docum~1" would be ...
