Subject:Re: Paradox crashing on terminal server leaves application unrunable

Lots of good feeedback there, thanks Tom.
But the application works under normal circumstances and we don't use 
Paradox tables (except 1). As far as i've seen, the issue with the 
NETDIR being set wrongly creates issues with shared access to tables and 
that's not the issue here.

The issue is that paradox can refuse to launch or even crash after it 
crashes for one user.
