Blackbaud problem

For some reason our server stopped working this morning. I reset the server and just about everything came up except with one program I originally got an error that it didn't reconize any of the users. It eventually came up after a few minutes and let everyone in. Then I went into our accounting software and got this error. Any clue what might be going on?



See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this
application or machine (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine
rather than being handled by this dialog.

The topmost line already says it all: The file "settings.xml" is in use by another process so it couldn't be opened with the requested flag-combination. There are various reasons for this, among them a virus scanner locking the file, a backup program working on it, malware or other programs accessing it... I'd suggest downloading "unlocker" and check which processes do have open handles on this file.

Reboot the workstation(s) and see if that takes care of the issue.
