If you getting “Invalid data file” errors in LegalEase or messages regarding possible data corruptions then the following information might be benefit to you.

Here are registry setting files that is recommended for ISAM databases (such as LegalEase’s TPS files) on a LAN.

It is a zip file containing two registry files that can be imported into the workstation registries (Wstation.reg) and Windows server registry (Wserver.reg).

These settings may slow LegalEase down a little because it disables read caching and opportunistic locking but the data access across the LAN should be more reliable.

Here is the contents of the REG files:

Wserver.reg:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer]

“CachedOpenLimit”=dword:00000000

“EnableOpLocks”=dword:00000000

“EnableOpLockForceClose”=dword:00000001

Wstation.reg:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanworkstation\parameters]

“UseLockReadUnlock”=dword:00000000

“UseOpportunisticLocking”=dword:00000000

“UtilizeNtCaching”=dword:00000000
