When Defox protected application runs it checks hash value of VFP runtime. Error 3 means that hash value is wrong, so your customer uses modified VFP runtime. Ask him to use original VFP runtime. In some rare cases this error may occur if runtime is modified in memory after application have been loaded. Most probably this may be caused by virus activity or by hacker's attempt to crack your application.
