    This thread will resolve 2 known problems. Firstly, the TRACE scanner in TDS-3 is intended to be run with Administrator privileges, and can report trace filenames existing when run under a limited user account. To resolve this, simply use RUN AS to run TDS-3 as an Administrator where possible (try to run TDS-3 as an Administrator at all times)

    Secondly, when TDS-3 is running, the program protects itself, including locking the TDS-3 keyfile TDS3.KF. If you use Fast User Switching on Windows XP, and then try to run TDS-3 again in another user account you will find that it cannot find the keyfile and reports an error L1A>

    Solution
    In both cases, simply use RUN AS to run TDS-3 under the context of another logged in user - this should be an ADMIN user, all accounts should run TDS-3 as an Administrator. To do so, simply right-click on the TDS-3 shortcut or TDS-3.EXE itself and choose RUN AS

    Then choose to run as any account with Administrator privileges, this could be the account named Administrator or another account with the required privileges.
