RE: The system cannot execute the specified program

According to ICON, this is due to the size of the RAM on your PC. If you
have less than 3 GB of RAM and running the 'big' nm7 job, it will not allow
you to run more than 2 jobs at once. You may need to increase your RAM to
6GB to solve this problem.
