Several people have reported this. It seems to be a CR message
box that is being displayed. Everytime this has happened, it was
a problem with either not having ODBC32 installed or not having the
Emerald ODBC DSN confgiured correctly.

Did you install CR3 when you installed VB4? There is a version
defect in the Emerald install where it sometimes does not install
over an older version of files. This seems to be really centered
around the CR files.
