Run-time libraries are probably OK because this error seems to be generated by application itself.

Does the application have some 16 bit component? Did you install it in a folder where users have full access rights?

What line causes this error?

"Error starting the application object. "
Which application object? In which line is it?

I'm not very familiar with VFP below version 5, but assume this is not a start error of the runtime with a runtime defect. Are you perhaps using CreateObject("VisualFoxpro.Application") in your application?

Bye, Olaf.

The system operated normally logging in as Admin on the local machine.
 We change the folder rights for 'everyone' and is now functional for any user.
 Thank you all.
