File saving with Frame 10

Aug 14, 2013 7:32 AM

I can not save a file to the same location that I got it from. I get error messages saying: can't open the .lck file and 2. that I don't have permission and yet I can save other file formats perfectly well. I can save the FM files to a different location, for example my desktop.

I installed some Windows updates earlier on. I'm using WinXP SP3.

I'd like to know if there is a known reason for this?

    You shouldn't be trying to open the .lck file - you should be opening the regular file and getting a message that someone is still working on it and if you know that no-one is, then you can override the warning. Your problem may also be that the file itself has gotten set to view-only within FM - you can reset it. Check the Help file or the forums for view-only - there are instructions out there for doing it (I just can't remember off the top of my head).

    Check your permissions to the folder – those might have changed. Also verify that you’ve still got the setting turned on in the FM Prefs screen for creating the .lck files.

    Found it:


    <esc> F l k


    That's <esc> shfit+F (uppercase "F") l (lowercase "L") k (lowercase "K")
