We have a Delphi application using Rave Reports running on a server. We have been getting the following error:

‘Unable to gain control of RAVE Date Communication System.’

when we have been running our application. The application executes entries as they appear in the table, printing off labels and removing them from the table. This application has been working correctly most of the time, so we are sure it is not a basic coding problem and we have not been able to replicate the error on our test system. We have noticed that when this problem occurs, the program appears to crash, leaving its .exe still running in the processes of the Task Manager, but it is absent from the (Task Manager)Applications window. To fix this problem, we are currently forced to manually end this process before the application can be started again. If anyone knows of any possible reasons or fixes for this problem we would be grateful.
