SYSTEM ERROR: I/O error <n> in <program>, ret <n>, file <n>, addr <n>. (290)

The same application runs fine on other systems.
Filemonitor does not show any problem in finding the file

Server log might contain something similar to the following:

Steps to Reproduce
Clarifying Information
Error MessageSYSTEM ERROR: I/O error <n> in <program>, ret <n>, file <n>, addr <n>. (290)
SYSTEM ERROR: I/O error 2 in readit, ret <n>, file <n>, addr 0. (290)
Defect/Enhancement Number
Corrupted r-code.
Replace corrupted r-file

To find which piece of code is causing the problem use a 3rd party tool or Operating System tool to find the filehandle in order to further analyze which file is causing the error..

UNIX: Use lsof against the PID of the Progress Session.
Windows: Use the Handle tool from MicroSoft Sysinternals  

Using Progress start the client with -yx startup parameter to see what procedures are being run and re-compile those procedures.
