Second Runtime Error 3050

Recap: Couldn't get a program to work in limited user account. Got
Runtime error 3051: "Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open file.
It's already opened exclusively by another user, or you need
permission to view its data." With this newsgroup's help, fixed that
error by opening security in named file and changed permissions.

Now when I try to launch the program, get a new Runtime error 3050:
"Could not lock file." Could someone please tell me where to go to
fix this new problem?

Thanks

Mike

Did you give the user account full control?

Yes I did.

Hi Mike,

The error indicates that thier is either still a permissions problem (must
have write privileges on the file - everyone/full control if the database is
on another system, users if local), or a problem with the database itself
(some reading indicates that if the index is incorrect or missing this error
can occur). For the latter you would need to find support for the language
it is written in.
