locked files

Recommended Posts

I have seen some suspicious events you might want to check out. I suspect that if I terminate a running Jet beta app under Vista, it does not always free its hold on open files. This causes subsequent runs to fail. Reboot clears these locks.  The app where this happens is enormous but basically what it does is over and over read a file  into RAM, process it, and if the processed results differ, it writes it back to a temp, deletes the original, and renames the temp to the original.

If you don't see  this behaviour, I can cook up an SSCCE for you (see http://mindprod.com/jgloss/sscce.html) that perhaps can demostrate it.

I might not be Jet's fault.  Vista seems to have problems generally with refusing access to files in unpredicable ways.
