 Emulating network on a Standalone ??

I was able to emulate a multi user enviroment with DOS 3.5 or 4.0  Pdox
under OS/2 so that i could test my applications at home for the effect of a
multi user enviroment...my recollection of how i did this was to set up 3
directories (or folders these days) called Snet Unet1 Unet2 and thru the
subst commant in a DOS window set Snet to s: for the shared files and U:
for Unet1 and Unet2 for the private folders ... I then set PDOX to network
which emulated 2 users with 1 copy of Paradox...this enabled me to test the
effects of record locking etc

any ideas how to accomplish essentially the same thing with P7.0 (32bit)??

I haven't had occasion to try this myself but you should be able to do
this by opening multiple "sessions".  I believe all that is required to
do this is separate private directories.  Check it out and let me know
if it works.

Bill,

I think you can accomplish what you want by starting your first instance of PDOX as usual and then
starting the second instance by using the "p" switch on the command line to tell PDOX that you want to use a
different private directory-i.e. "pdxwin32 -p e:\private" with e:\private being the directory PDOX will use as
your private directory for the 2nd instance-if you run 5.0 or earlier versions, you should probably use the
"n" switch also as this tells it not to write changes about your private directory back to your win.ini file

hope this is what you were looking for
