Works: Error -39 and -43 Saving Files Over a Network

PSS ID Number: Q50664 Article last modified on 06-10-1996



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, version 2.0


When using network software from developers such as Novell, 3Com and Dayna to connect PC and Macintosh computers, error -39 or -43 may be received when opening or saving Microsoft Works version 2.00 files.

AppleShare sets server ID numbers for files on its volume to an integer between 0 (zero) and 65,536. Works limits itself to these integers. However, networks such as Novell, 3Com, and DaynaNet reserve 0 to 65,536 for PC files only and start numbering Macintosh files from 65,536. Any Macintosh application that restricts its ID number to the AppleShare ID range will receive error -43 when saving and error -39 when opening.

This issue has been addressed and fixed in Microsoft Works 2.00e.
