My wife's office runs a database application from a file server. Normally we access this file on the file server (C:\VHMWin\VHMWin.exe by mapping a network drive (we name it F:) to the root of the file server, then making a shortcut to the .exe mentioned above.
Dragging the file from the server to the workstation desktop (to create a shortcut) results in a corrupted win.ini file on the workstation, so I make this the new win.ini:
SUNPOINT=F:\Sunpoint (this is needed by the program also - but I don't know why)
When I double click the shortcut on the workstation - I cannot connect and get database errors. I've even mirrorred the accounts on all of the systems (It's actually a workgroup named "WORKGROUP")
I've verified all of the Network settings, have tried this with wired and wireless systems with no success. I've copied the settings from the working workstations to the non-working ones (still no success), have disabled all the firewall/security apps with now success.
Any suggestions? The 2 systems involved are laptops - all previous systems were desktops. The laptops connect wired and wirelessly to the web without any problems.
