fopen ("file on shared drive","w+") doesn't work on 2nd call using Windows LabView DDL

I have a shared drive on SGI, Linux, and Windows.

The problem is within the same program a second call to fopen does not
create a file if the file has been deleted.

I would like to use fopen for its pointer return value to solve this.

What is the best way to fix this problem?

The reason I want to do this is I do not want to exit completely
from LabView and then re-enter it to create the file!

I talked to my system person and he said something "like" this. That it

is a caching problem. Windows has the file in cache memory. All
references to it affect the cached file. You can do fopens (NULL not
returned, and errno not set), reads, and writes, but they do not
affect the file in question on the shared drive. He went on to say that
have to use an unbuffered option with "creat" and change all

Will doing a creat with an unbuffered option (his suggestion) help?
Thank you, 

Christopher Lusardi
