|In an environment where multiple servers are operating using the Windows Server 2008 product, or Vista or Windows 7 operating systems, new cache features found in these operating systems may cause errors to be generated when CAPITAL applications are being executed in a distributed access environment. Such as when data is placed on a 2008 server and accessed from another 2008 server or Windows 7 PC across a LAN connection.
To resolve these issues the following registry keys should be set to zero:
* Directory cache: DirectoryCacheLifetime
* File Not Found cache: FileNotFoundCacheLifetime
* File information cache: FileInfoCacheLifetime
As these are local cache settings these registry changes should be made on the computer accessing the data, not on the computer distributing the data.
