A fatal C000006 error or an 1104 "error reading file" error can be caused by several things. One possibility is that a file Stonefield Query is trying to access is being scanned or quarantined by anti-virus software. To eliminate that issue, configure your anti-virus software to not scan the Data subdirectory of the Stonefield Query program folder or the folder in which you store reports.

Another possibility is mapped network shares set up using group policy; see for a discussion. The solution is to use "update" rather than "replace" for the policy for the network share.

Another possibility: disable the "Digitally sign communications" settings. To do that, click Start, type mmc, right-click, and choose Run as Administrator. In the console, on the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in. In the Add or Remove Snap-ins dialog, select the Group Policy Object Editor and click Add, click Finish in the new dialog that appears, then click OK. In the console tree, expand Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies and click Security Options. Double-click and choose Disabled for each of these items:

Microsoft network client: Digitally sign communications (always)

Microsoft network client: Digitally sign communications (if server agrees)

Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (always)

Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (if server agrees)
