Hi all,

However, if you run App2 and then App1, we get the following message:

OK, this is easy - it had me "foxed" for some time, I had to "wade" "myles"
through the BDE help, and stressed out to the "max".  My customers were after
my "hyde", and I really felt "black and  "dunfor'", but I was saved from having to
eat "crowe", and my mind put at 'ease", when during a walk in the "garden" I
thought by "george", I know the answer! "Mark" my words I was "wright", and in
the "nic" of time, I had made the configuration change, and knew I had made a
"wise" decision. Oh dear, too many late nights on the keyboard!

The fix is to change the setting for SHAREDMEMLOCATION in the BDE setup -
Configuration | System | Init.

I use a value of "1000" ( less quotes ), but you may have to experiment to find a
suitable value. Range values are given in the BDE help. I have only seen it happen
in the NT machines. Since making the change I've not had any problems at all.

Kindest Regards
