Alaska Software has investigated into an issue in the SMB2 protocol as used under Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008. This issue can lead to data loss or corruption in files shared in network environments. We have set up a dedicated web page explaining the details. The web page also provides access to an MSI package to configure workstations so that data corruption no longer occurs when using SMB2.
Although Alaska Software has tested this approach in its labs and with some customers, we would like to encourage all of the Xbase++ community to send in as much feedback as possible related to this subject matter! Specifically, we are eager to know whether the package provided safely resolves the SMB2 problem, and whether it is suitable for usage at your customers' sites.
More details can be found here: www.alaska-software.com/smb2
Please send any feedback or question related to that issue to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you very much upfront.
