Description of CREATFIX patch utility:
CREATFIX.EXE is a patch utility that modifies the SERVER.EXE file of
NetWare 386 v3.0. Some applications attempt to create a file by using the
DOS INT 21 call CREATE NEW FILE (function 5B). This call will only succeed
in creating the specified file if it does not already exist. If the file does
exist, function 5B returns an error code indicating the existence of the file.
NetWare 386 erroneously returns an ACCESS DENIED error if function 5B
is called to create a file which already exists. This may confuse certain
applications, leading to unpredictable results.
CREATFIX corrects this problem and causes the correct error code to
be returned to the application. Future versions of NetWare 386 will already
have this fix implemented. This patch will only work for NetWare 386 v3.0.
Instructions for use:
Copy CREATFIX.EXE into the same directory as SERVER.EXE and type
CREATFIX. The program will patch the file and notify the user when finished.
