Subject Re: Unable to Launch the Server Thread Error No 2

Thanks for the reply. I did intent to install Classic. I have Windows
Me. I uninstalled and reinstalled except I unchecked "Use Guardian"
and just left "Use as application" checked and it seems to be running
OK now. I sort of did the opposite of what you asked me to since I
had already check "Use Guardian" but it got me thinking. We are
using it for a database for our Club and the person who wrote the
original program used Classic. If another member cannot install
Classic but can install "super server" will our program work since he
wrote it for Classic?
Thanks again.
