Message 47 project locked

Postby Rock » Fri Aug 04, 2017 1:40 pm

I got a project from a colleague but I can't open it due to error message 47.
Error message says it's locked but my colleague said he did not lock it.
How to open? I can not find any un-lock function.

You have to manually (with Windows Explorer) delete a file called {projectname}.ewp22.
This file is located in the DATA folder in the project folder.

When Elwin opens a project then this file is created. When Elwin closes the project then the file is removed.

If Elwin crashes, or Windows crashes, or you copy a opened project with Explorer then this file is not removed. If someone else other than you try to open that project then error message 47 is generated and the project can not be opened.
