    Please can you add more information. What software is it you are using? Is it something you have written yourself? – ChrisF Mar 23 '11 at 13:22
  • yes, it is a software which uses foxpro as database and is written in foxpro – sqlchild Mar 23 '11 at 13:24
  • If you have written it yourself, then Stack Overflow would be a better place to ask, but you would need to supply much more information and the code that was failing. – ChrisF Mar 23 '11 at 13:26
  • does DOS also uses Thumbs.db file? but it is created by Windows then how could DOS use it? is it possbile? or it would depend on my code ? – sqlchild Mar 23 '11 at 13:28
  • when, am running it one system then it does not shows error, but on another system it gives this reset thumbs.db error? so i think that there's no error in my code. – sqlchild Mar 23 '11 at 13:29

If thumbs.db is a system file, try changing the properties so it's not. If it's an empty file, then delete it. Also, if you run your program while Windows Explorer has the same folder open, there may be a file access conflict.
