Thanks Akshat,

The only difference i see in the BDE is that I have more open files and that I didnt have a shared memory location.

Thanks for the top tips of possible hiccups. I do have one exclusive file in the main app but its not accessed at all in the syncing app that runs in the background.

At first attempt before I even start reading files it crashed with the error message attached.

Does it make a difference if it runs as administrator or standard user?

Thanks again for your top tips.

My Best,

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?
