File Locking

I am running Windows 95 based accounting software that uses the Btrieve
Microkernal Database Engine (MKDE) ver 6.15.451.

I have the software stored locally on the clients, and the data stored
on a SAMBA share.

My question is thus - does MKDE provide all file locking services, and
if so, can or should I disable file locking services for this share in

I have been having trouble with files being corrupted, and this is the
only thing I can think of that might work.

If anyone has had experience with this, please let me know.
