Problems with SwitchDB


We have a recurring issue that happens sometimes when putting a clean IDES on a mobile client

This happens in 5.0 SP11 but we also had the issue with SP07

When trying to attach, it fails and returns the message 'Failed to copy car file' - which is not a particularly helpful message.

i thought that it might be a permissions thing initially on the network drive that it was stored but it also happens from desktop.

I checked to make sure that there were no SQl locks in place

I am stuck.

The only way around it that I have found is to extract the car file and then attach the database in SQL Manager and run the IDES scripts in ISQLW 😔
