foreground geoprocessing stopped working

Discussion created by tomdilts on Oct 17, 2011
I recently got error 010067 when running a model in model builder (MB).  I enabled background geoprocessing in MB and the tool worked.  I also tried running the tool from ArcToolbox both in the foreground and the background.  The background worked and foreground didn't.  Has anyone else experienced such this strange behavior?  Any thoughts on how to fix things?
