When you run a 16-bit parent and child program in separate memory spaces of the parent program, the parent program generates an access violation error message.
This problem occurs because the address space of the parent program contains a Shared Object list. When you start a child program, it adds its task information to the Shared Object list. However, when you quit the child program, the child program's information in the Object List is not removed. The Shared Object list continues to grow as child programs start and quit until the parent program generates an access violation error message.
