Issues with XP Service Pack 2 09/07/04
Some of the many new features included in Windows XP Service Pack 2 require special configuration in order to allow NPL to function properly. For more information, see Technical
Note No. 100.
Performance Tuning NPL in Windows Environments 04/25/01
As more and more users transition to Windows NT / 2000 networks from Novell and Unix, and
to 32-bit applications from 16-bit applications, some of them observe performance
anomalies. For information designed to clarify some configuration items that cause
these performance issues, and some possible solutions, see Technical
Note No. 99.
Configuring LANA Numbers in NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 12/20/00
Occasionally, even if properly configured, the RunTime may experience difficulty
authenticating with an NT/Windows 2000 server from some NT/Windows 2000 workstations,
resulting in an erroneous "Number of Authorized users exceeded", error message.
This problem is typically related to the LANA (LAN Adapter) number configuration of
NetBIOS on the workstation, if the default LANA number, zero, is bound to a wide-area
network. For the most current information regarding configuring LANA numbers,
go to Technical Note No. 98.
Packaging a Vinny Project for Distribution 12/20/00
Since the release of 32-bit Vinny it has become apparent that the distribution information
contained in the original documentation is incomplete. This tech note is being
published to correct that situation. For information on the correct method for
deploying a Vinny application, go to Technical Note No. 97.
Search Sequence for Locating DLL's 12/20/00
One of the questions that arises when using external libraries in conjunction with NPL is
how does NPL find the library? DLL's used with the /X option of NPL are
not normally registered, but rather are found by a Microsoft API LoadLibrary call, which
uses the standard Windows hunt order for directories to search. For more information
on that hunt order, go to Technical Note No. 96.
