Running the VFP 5.0 application on a Windows 95 client (runtime dlls only - no VFP installed.) The application creates a text file for a mail merge with Word 97. It then executes a run command to create the mail merge, as "RUN /N C:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT OFFICE\OFFICE\WINWORD.EXE c:\CONTRACT\contract.doc /mmergetofile". The merge works fine, but when I close out Word and return to the VFP 5.0 system, I get an error "Invalid seek offset" and have to end the task and sometimes the entire system freezes up. Some drive mappings to the network are lost. This machine is running Windows 95. I cannot duplicate the error on my development (Windows NT) machine.
