Good Morning Michael,

> That was my first thought, run a seperate .exe in low priority in the background but I never had success running multiple exe's. They would eventually conflict or crash, if they ran at all. I would always get an insufficient resources to run this executable message. Is there any special settings I need to put in the BDE to be able to run a second exe or special commands within the program to run independantly?
I do not remember doing any setting specifically.

Usually independent exe will not conflict if you have prepared them well
for shared usage. The steps involved are
1. Avoid exclusive usage.
2. Txt files or tmp dbf files should not have the same name.

Seasoned programmers will be able to outline more steps.
The conflicts I encountered were due to above 2 reasons.

My BDE settings are attached if they can help.

Try them and if you still get an error then please post a screenshot of
the error. You will get better solution.
