Subject:netdump and lockdump

mostly just an FYI, but Mike Kennedy might have some insight

client has a growing lock file, on an on-going basis.. the reasons are 
understandable and for the moment, unavoidable.. when everyone gets out of 
paradox, it goes away, so it's not damaged

all the machines are 64-bit, so lockdump and netdump will NOT run on their 
machines (16 bit)

copied both to my system.. they seem to be making a good net file, I can 
always read it with netdump just fine, it's always 13030 bytes, the data 
matches what the app says, etc

here's the issue, Mike :-)  long story, but I can't use the same drive 
letter on my machine.. at the command prompt, lockdump throws an 
Abort/Retry/Fail cuz it can't find the net file on the correct drive.. so I 
edit the lock file, substitute a different drive letter, and save the file.. 
then lockdump says "This is a Directory Lock"
