Confirm that iscr32.exe is working by itself e.g. iscr32.exe -k10 -r1500 myfile.pro
Ensure you path includes the location of the executables
There is another option that works with iscr called -e (empty). you could give that a try.
-e didn't seem to do anything at all. I appreciate all the help, I feel as if there may be nothing I can do to get the database back up and running. the only other thing I was thinking is you mentioned originally that "it looks like your proiv is set to check the files at launch" is there a way I can tell it not too? and hope that it gives me access to some of the data?
