Hi all, I'm receiving an error message when trying to check out a file in EPDM:  "file open in another application".  I came across this thread:


"File open in another application" flag when checking out files.


which is exactly the same issue as I'm seeing, but that thread has been marked as resolved.  I used the tool mentioned in that thread to see what process is using it, and it looks like explorer.exe is the culprit.  Any ideas on what might be causing this?  I've had this same message on a few files today.  Also worth noting, I'm trying to checkout the drawing, not the part, but cannot check out the drawing because the part is being used by explorer.exe.  please see screen shots.


thanks for the help.
