Running multiple instances of network-installed sherston software
I'm new to this forum (and to this line of work!) & have looked around for help with my problem but found nothing, so apologies if I've missed something obvious.
I'm having trouble running a Sherston package (Arcventure Egyptians) on more than 1 PC in a school I support. It is installed onto their NAS box and the 5 PCs needing access to it can all run it individually no problem. The trouble starts when trying to run it concurrently on 2 or more PCs. I get a message along the lines of "..unable to open <path to shared install directory on NAS>\shared_filestuff.cxt as the file is open with write permissions by another user.." on all except the PC which launched the software first.
I have checked through all the folders for any config / ini files which may need amending but can find nothing (other than details of save dir paths, etc, which are all ok). The teacher assures me that they have had it working like this before but I can't see what need amending to get it working (and the info in Sherstons packaging is of no use!!). It's probably something really simple & I'll look like a clown, but has anyone any suggestions to help me out?
many thanks in advance,
