Description of OPENFIX patch utility:
OPENFIX.EXE is a patch utility that modifies the SERVER.EXE file of
NetWare 386 v3.0. Some applications open the same file more than once
within the program. If the application opens the file with different access
rights (or fewer access rights) the next time, the rights granted during the
latest OPEN will overwrite the previous access rights. For example, if a file
is opened with Read\Write access rights the first time, then is opened again
with only the Read access right, the file opened first will no longer have the
Write access right when the second file is closed. This problem only occurs if
the same file is being opened a second time without closing it the first time.
Applications that receive the resulting ACCESS DENIED error from NetWare
may interpret this differently and give the user inaccurate error messages.
The AccPac software by Computer Associates, for example, returns a DISK FULL
error when this occurs. Other applications may return different error messages.
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 OPENFIX.EXE into the same directory as SERVER.EXE and type
OPENFIX. The program will patch the file and notify the user when finished.
