 I just had a locking problem with a localy written application done
with 'Delpi' ?, that works fine with multiple Win95 workstations,
fine with multiple NT workstations, but if a Win95 machine opens the
application first, the NT workstations cant lock the file and the application
aborts. The application allows multiple users to update the one database
file, I assume it does record locking.

 Since this program is our 'online' enrolment application and enrolment
is today, im not in a position to debug any further. Normally the application
is only run on win95 machines, the NT workstations being used for enrolment
were pinched from my NT based student lab...
 There appears to be some sort of incompatablity between win95 and NT file
