I have a VB6 application that has MSDE as its current backend. In
testing moving to SLSQLExpress I've noticed, since this application is run on laptops, that if I disconnect the network cable while I'm in the VB6 app I lose "connection" to the database. If I end task on the app and restart it it works fine. If I reconnect the network cable while the app is running and then disconnect it the app runs fine. Also this happens when I'm connected to a wireless network and then disconnect and disable that connection.

In my template.ini file I have DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=0. Is there a setting I'm missing? I can't seem to find anything else to set in the ini file.
