Win95 will not work with a case sensitive file system such as QOopenSys.
Win98/NT will.  Don't use QOopenSys if you have to use old OS's.

Subject: QOpenSys name rules


Are the object name rules for QOpenSys different for V3R2, V3R7, and V4R*?
I
have a working application that used CPYTOSTMF to copy a file to QOpenSys
with
a target file name like BALED20001121142700.TXT .  The command executes
correctly, and the file shows up in Windows Explorer with this name, but
when
I try to do *anything* with the file in Windows95 - copy it, move it, delete
it - I get a message box declaring that the file cannot be found.  From an
AS/400 command line, I used WRKLNK to rename that object to BALED2.TXT and
that fixed the problem.  I imagine that the culprit was an object name that
did not conform to a valid 8.3 DOS-like name.

I am 99% certain I did not have this restriction in a previous shop,
although
I am uncertain as to whether I had access to a V3R2 box to test it on (that
shop had 25+ AS/400s at various OS levels).  The other difference that I can
think of is that I was using WindowsNT 4.? as my Client Access workstation
at
the previous shop.

Is it OS/400 version differences?
Is it Win95 vs. WinNT differences?
PTFs?
Service Packs?
