File sharing lock count exceeded
When converting very large files to sdltb, you may get a crash with the error File sharing lock count exceeded. Increase MaxLocksPerFile registry entry. This appears to be be a bug in MultiTerm or MS Access. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/815281 for a fix.
Follow the steps for Method 1, Access 2000, regardless of any other Access versions you may have installed. I used a value of 40000 to convert a termbase with 170000 entries, so that could be a starting point.
Once the registry is set, before the conversion, reboot your machine, to ensure that any potential locks are released.
This method does not always work, but has a good success rate.
I also had reports that these steps may help:
- Increase locks as above
- Use the Converter to create xdt/xml files
- Use MultiTerm to create a new termbase based on the xdt file
- In MultiTerm, import the xml file
