Was the database file on a server network share? Which EEFF version do you use?
How large database file is and how many concurrent users have access to it?
Yes, Peter, Database is on network and EEFF version is 3.2.5
It's a 70MB file & it was accessed by 5 users simultaneously.
Do problem occurs only when multiple users are getting to database file at the same time?
When single user using there is no error but as soon as second user accessing the file it gives error

I would contact McAfee support on this issue. They might tell you that EEPC is not supported for multiuser network file access.
The best is to prove that multiuser access on unencrypted database file works fine. Did you do that test?
Already contacted McAfee and waiting for their reply since long.. ,
Actually my exceptions are high with Community..
the same scenario was working fine before encryption and right now also its working fine when we decrypt the database and exclude from ecnryption
Any more info about this? I'm testing out EEFF 3.2.5 and this is one scenario I would probably use EEFF for.
Sharing an access database like that for multiple simultaneous users is not really what the system was designed for - there's no object locking between users, or transactional write arbitration for example - see
But, it kind of works as long as you have the DB set to open in "Shared" mode
There's a great writeup on the whole topic by Albert Kallal - http://www.members.shaw.ca/AlbertKallal/Articles/split/index.htm
having EEFF in the mix just complicates things further though as we have to rely on the file cache being "helpful", and many other aspects of the OS and network remaining stable.
