Alloy Navigator Doesn’t Play Nice with Parallels
I don’t know about all you thousands of Mac users that have to run the Alloy Navigator client via Parallels, but I’m finding it awfully dodgy.
For some reason the client can’t maintain a stable connection to the server, and I get 1K windows blooming with this error–
“qryMain: Cannot perform this operation on a closed dataset”
Plus I get lots of “Connection Failure” (heh heh)
“Data provider or other service returned an E_FAIL status”
“General network error. Check your network documentation”
It’s bad. Really bad. Yes other stuff like web browsing and network shares are fine. Just this Alloy which uses some kind of SQL.
