Problem with Access 97 & TDatabase

I have need to have 2 instances of a program running on the same computer. I
have a
Tdatabase connecting to Access 97. I am using D4 Client Server on NT 4.x.  I
have
several storedprocs that I call in the app.  The first app to call a stored
procedure always
runs. The second app will then freeze until the first app closes and then will
proceed
normally. The second app does not time out and gives no exception. It just
stops until the
first app closes all files and the tdatabase connection is inactive.

Can sombody give me a clue as to what is happening?

Thanks.
