Defect/Enhancement Number
Progress is attempting to create a record to the _mru_files (AppBuilder) or MRU_Files (Procedure Editor) temp-table that already exists when constructing the Menu Recently Used (MRU) Utility. The data that is being used to create that temp-table record is coming from a duplicated entry in the registry or configuration settings (INI) file.
Delete or update an MRUFile entry of the ProAB (AppBuilder) or Proedit (Procedure Editor) Section in the registry, or INI file. For example, if the following ProAB Section of an INI file was being used to start up Progress, it would be necessary to delete the MRUFile4 line (shown below), or update it to point to another file name.

/*** INI File ***/
