Collector Connector (CC06)
If Collector Connector issues a Sharing Violation error when it Error (Win 3.1 Only) first attempts to load into memory, or when it first attempts to access a “Sight” Survey COGO file, it is most likely because neither the DOS SHARE.EXE or Windows VSHARE is loaded into memory. Since VShare, if needed, is loaded by Collector Connector’s Setup / Installation program, this error should only occur if you are using Windows 3.1 and did not restart Windows after the installation was complete. The message may appear similar to the following:
To correct the situation, you simply need to restart your Windows session or reboot your computer for VShare to be loaded into memory, then restart Collector Connector.
If for some reason, this does not correct the problem, you may need to install VShare manually. To install VShare manually, you must edit the Windows 3.1 SYSTEM.INI configuration file located in the Windows directory.
To edit the SYSTEM.INI file when using Windows 3.1, open the Windows File Manager program and double-click on the SYSTEM.INI file located in the Windows directory. The file should open up in the Windows Notepad or WordPad editor. Under the [386Enh] section, add the following line:
Save the changes, exit, and restart Windows. You should now be able to run Collector Connector.
