When you run the Citect compiler, it will normally open all files in exclusive mode. In this mode only one program may have the files opened at the same time. This improves the performance of the compiler, but may cause a problem if two people try to compile different databases at the same time--as the both compilations will open the Include database.

A CITECT.INI option [General]ShareFiles tells the compiler to open all files in shared mode. This option will allow shared network users to run the compiler at the same time. However the compilation may take up to twice as long to complete, so only use this option if required.
