Considering P99SE can leave the Client99 process running when you close the application, what else could it do if you were closing it with a DDB open? Could this be the issue, I don't believe I have seen any of you mention that you specifically close the DDB first? Possibly Robert meant this, but I found his wording a bit mysterious.

I am also running P99SE SP6 on W2K Pro with SP2, and it has been enormously reliable. (I am running the W2K as
a guest operating system under Linux, using VmWare.) I sometimes close every file in the DDB, other times,
especially when I'll be working on it the next day, I just close the entire DDB. I have , ONCE, in the last 2 years,
had P99 not shut down, and have to be killed with the task manager. I have never had a database corruption
problem, or failure to close the DDB, or anything like that. It has just been extremely reliable. I am running
it in pretty much the same environment both at my home (I have a small business there) and at the University.
(Yes, I have 2 licenses.) On very rare occasions, I will get a crash of some component of P99, but I have
ALWAYS been able to save the files, close and restart Protel, and have never lost any work. (That's
amazing, too!)
