DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Initialize()()).]General network error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are currently facing this error with at least 3 different sequences. Problems started around 22nd of july this year.

    Dan Gough's artical about it from last year descibes it and the workaround works, but we are not sure wether we want to change this setting on al, our Windows 7 PC's

    We have nu clue whats causing this and could use some help.

  • It's a little strange that the issue just started, if it was the same issue as Dan's blog wouldn't the problem always of existed?

    What happens if you add the key, does the issue go away?

    Adding the key will just allow all the virtual applications direct access to that location in the real registry, if there is an issue you can remove it.

  • Yeah, its strange.

    Adding the key does solve the problem.

    We have decided to add the key on all workstations.
