I have a form in DLL. I will get the "Client ID not unique process stoped" error the first time when I call the DLL. If the application heep running and keep call theis DLL I will not get this error.

It looks like the DLL did not unload properlly. Thanks for any help.

Please give more info.
It seems that you get assigned an ID from the DLL to keep track of concurrent programs calling the DLL.
Show some API calls to the DLL.

This is what I did in DLL, and I got the error on the line say "Application.CreateForm(TfrmShow,frmShow) ;"

Thanks.

//----------------------------------------------
function MyFunction(...) : integer ;  stdcall;
var
  frmShow: TfrmShow;
  i : integer ;

begin
   Application.CreateForm(TfrmShow,frmShow) ;
   with frmShow do
   try
      // Pass throught data
      if ShowModal = mrOK
      then begin
          //
      end ;
      // Pass Result back
      Hide
   finally
      Free ;
   end ;
end;

1. Do not use CreateForm. Use Create.
   CreateForm is not for you.
2. Use ShareMem as first unit in program and DLL.

These are the first stumbling blocks for using forms in DLLs.

You mean like this?

frmShow := TfrmShow.Create(nil) ;
