Can't return large files HELP NEEDED

I have recently updated to Across 6.3 and am no longer able to return large files (over 5000 words) to my client's server.
Small ones are OK and I can upload the original files for translation.
When I try to return large files or even when I try to save the CRU on my own computer I get a weird error message

Substituteld failed
Details Dispatch error #3105 etc....

Has anyone ever seen anything like this before?
I have a new computer with windows 8 and never had any trouble with Across 6.0

I have spent the last couple of hours trying to work out what the problem is as I have 30,000 words of translation that I can't return and the Across help desk doesn't reply

The error message says that I must increase the "MaxLocksPerFile registry entry" to get Across to work

Does anyone know how to do this?
Alternatively do I get this error massage because I only have Office 2007?? Do you have to have a recent edition of Office or even MS Access to get Across to work

Many thanks for rapid assistance

Thanks for any help

Thanks Adrien

I got an email from Across confirming what you suggested i.e. that I have to change the registry settings

I did so - the computer then seemed to go a bit beserk (I lost the menu strip on the bottom of the screen) but it calmed down after I cut off the power supply

I then restarted the computer but I can no longer get into across as I have "used up the maximum number of activations!!!"

I therefore will have to wait until tomorrow to get back to the support centre

Wasted time now probably 36 hours

Resolution Jan 16, 2016

Just to add that these problems were resolved after changing the registry settings as instructed and uploading the new build of Across 7557 but it has been a bad week, in particular as I was locked out of Across and unable to do anything while waiting for 4 and 20 hours for support to get my account reactivated.

I do hope that Across will take action in future to prevent this happening again
