No, the arguments are in the right order for C[reate]; but (at least on
Win2k, can't speak for the others) you need a full path for the file being
read, as well as the one being created. And if c:\share.... is actually a
share of some kind, not an absolute physical path to a disk location under
the control of the server's host, then the database file can't be created.

If it *is* an absolute location, then maybe the DatabaseAccess is set to a
restricted root.

Note that if this location being served to Windows by Samba server, from
Linux, then it's *not* under the physical control of the host machine if
referred to by its SMB path, even if it's part of the same physical
system. (Just starting to smell a rat here, because of another thread
where the inquirer couldn't connect to a database on a FAT32 partition from
his Linux server - same coin, different face).
