When trying to open a database, the control panel shows and a window with the following message pops up:

Could not open or create multi-user-information file.

I'm have only 1 choice, "OK". I click OK and the message goes away and the database closes.

What does the message mean and how can I get around it?

Thanks for the help.

Ken,
I've run into this error when I've copied files from a CD-ROM and didn't change the read only attribute to archive. Alpha can't open the MUF file because it's marked read only. Could this be your problem?

Ken,

As Ohlen indicated, it might be related to the .muf file, which is the multiuser user count file (I believe that is correct). Nonetheless, if you open Windows Explorer and navigate to the folder your application is in, you should find the appname.muf file. Delete it and you're off and running.
