Thanks for the info.
Assuming that the error message is still, and always has been, exactly "Run time error '401' Can't show non-modal form when modal form is displayed", it seems to be indicating that there is another BD Window up at the same time, or I am trying to show a message after you click the "+" button. When I get back to the office on Thursday, I will check into this possibility.
Hang in there until Thursday please.
"By the way is it correct that there have been no update notices since March 8th?"
No, Build 47 was released on March 8th, but a Build 48 was released after that. It contained a few specialty updates that doesn't affect most users.
I am in the office today and ready to get onto your computer. When you get this, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply with instructions.
Email from me to your address is returned as spam.

How about Tuesday at 4pm your time? I sent you another email from a different account of mine in the hopes that your server does not mark it as spam.
Now it is flagging my other email address as Spam!!! You should talk to your provider btinternet.com and ask them to correct this. Or perhaps you have personal control over this.
Here is my email response to you:
Yes, anything you can do to be ready to reproduce the error please. Thanks.
At 4pm on Tuesday, please follow the instructions below.

UPDATE: Spent a couple hours on Charles computer this morning. The strange thing is that it would NOT fail for me when connected to his computer over the internet. But, when I let him drive, while I watched, it failed almost every time. So, the difference would seem to be in his keyboard/mouse instead of mine. He was able to replace his mouse, with the problem still occurring. I just am not sure it is his keyboard as the last thing he used was his mouse before each error. It is directly after clicking the "+" button in the Sightings Documents window.
I uploaded a debug version of BD, and the problem is happening while in a call to a system library routine. So the bug is NOT in BD but in a Windows System library. Probably COMDLG32.dll which contains the Open File system procedure.
Charles says he plans to upgrade his computer soon, so in light of that, he has agreed to muddle on with this issue until he gets a new computer. I agree. The new computer should definitely solve this problem, as I have no one else among thousands reporting this issue.
I emailed the info to you. Let me know if you don't get that email.
p.s. So weird that it only happens when you do it, but it doesn't fail when I do it logged into your computer over the internet.
