Well, it seems that when I run mpro /mypath/mydb, mpro ignores that database and does not setup a connection to that database. So then I tried mpro /mypath/mydb -S myportnumber and I got the error message The server or the system has no more resources. Please contact Progress Technical Support (748) I googled that message and got a page suggesting all sorts of things to try Progress KB - Corrective Measures for Error 748 which are all greek to me at this moment, but I am wondering if this is related to our QAD 2013 EE installation (the main database for QAD is the one I am trying to run mpro on). This is all on Linux which I only know enough to be dangerous on, so if there are some suggestions about config files or typical programs to run to check things out, please be a bit more specific than if you were talking to a Linux admin. Thanks. I assume that even if I launched mpro with no parameters that as soon as tried to connect to a database there, that I would still get this error.
