This may be associated with automatic Windows 10 updates, but I think it may be caused by the Shared Memory Conflict of a new .exe version of the Form that I am trying to complete.

The error I have received at times is Insufficient memory,followed by
Database Initilisation error when I try to Open more than 1 instance of
dBase or an app developed in dBase.

In your case have a look at the task manager listings. Maybe some
instance of dBase may be running in memory (but not visible on task bar)
when this error occurs

I am attaching help files for BDE settings.
You can have a look at the settings.

There could be some error there also
