Hi Everyone,

Suddenly Transit NXT starts throwing this error message:

state 08501 native 0 origin microsoft odbc sql driver communication link failure

The failure makes working with an SQL term base in WinXP SP3, running in Parallels Desktop, no longer possible. I'll have to return to (slower) Access databases.

Does someone know what is causing this failure?

Network interruption Oct 11, 2011

This simply means there was an interruption in your network. Make sure your LAN is stable so that this doesn't happen. With NXT, simply reloading the project fixes this.
