    Release file lock

    Shawn Kelly

      I have a application that I am developing where I want to be able to present the data card without exiting the file and using Explorer.  It's easy enough to show the card and save the edits, but of course the old message appears:

       

      Could not save card data to file since the file is opened in another application.

      Please close the file in the other program first.

      Does anyone know how to release a file lock on any file without closing the app or file.  I know SW has the ForceReleaseLocks method, but this is SW specific.

       

      Thanks,

      Shawn
