Lock file not removed after exiting MS project
« on: July 19, 2021, 04:35:38 AM »
Hello,

it seems to happen very often now when I am in MS project , I do some work and I exit without saving (Discard) then the lock file inside .files folder is not removed.

So in order to edit this project again, I have to physically remove the lock file in .files folder.. It is quite annoying...
Best Regards,

Hello Paul,

Which OS you are using and whether you close Metashape window where any actions related to the project have been performed before re-opening the same project?

Alexey,

I am using Windows 10 Pro version 20H2...

When I exit I do so normally either by File menu Exit or using the X on top right and normally I choose Discard as I do not want to keep the changes done.... And very often the lock file is not removed after exiting....
Best Regards,
