Hello,
we have a request from client to hide folder containig dbf files
from end users.

I am trying to use Advantage server (granting access rights to ADS
process only) for that and can open dbf files using dbusearea() with
UNC path to dbf files but indexes (cdx) will not be opened not with
autoopen (as they should by ADS documentation) nor with DBSetIndex()
call.
Dbsetindex() returns ADS 7041 error (File not found).

When I enable access for user to data folder ADS works without problem.

Any ideas what could be wrong?
Anybody successully using ADS with hidden database folder?

Calling ADS (ver. 12) from xHarbour/Fivewin development environment.
