Well I did just manage to get a log file and verify that the abort was the same two times. Here is the log:

So this is a complete guess but it appears to be related around unable to open the database file that stores the scanned info. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks again.

That usually means that the db file is locked by another program. might be a virus scanner. might be a realtime backup program… you can try a newer nightly ( if you aren’t alrady — there are some fixes there for locks by av programs.

If you are on a newish nightly, and are still having the problem, see if you can figure out what 3rd party program is grabbing the database, and see if you can exclude it from whatever the application is doing.
