8. DDE Shares dialog: Click: OK.
Note: Trusted shares can be lost upon rebooting the computer. If you are
experiencing problems with a view node accessing the host node after reboot, try
deleting the GE16MODB|* share and performing the steps listed above again. It also
may be helpful for troubleshooting purposes to look at NT's Event Viewer on the
Host and View nodes.
NetDDE on the View Node:
If you are experiencing trouble accessing the Host node, it may be due to the order in
which your Services are started. To see if this is the problem, try:
1. Make the RAS connection.
2. Launch … SYSTEM32\DDESHARE.EXE to start the NetDDE Service.
3. Launch the DDE client application (i.e. Excel, InTouch, … ).
