Thanks. It's a problem we have been struggling against for months in multi-user, mixed application,  virtual environment. If that makes any sense. So, I was looking for even a hack as a fix.

If locking is a problem, then rewrite it in another way. Have the users queue their requests and you write the handlers.

I once had a problem with FoxISAPI when over 25 users were online. I wrote a queuer that solved the problem.

Every problem has a solution. We don't have the source code. We don't have all the givens. You need to figure it out. We just de-puzzle the problem for you and help you out of our experience. Kill the application if not active or send a request to shut down.
