Read Only Project/ Workgroup Files?

When I try to open a file or save a file I get this "Error Locking File". It
shows that project is read only and I have file open in another application,
but I don't have another file open. However I had the file crash yesterday
and I opened the file up while it was crashed. It still thinks the file is
open. I have went into properties and checked to see if it was read only and
it was so I checked it off, but it doesn't help even after a restart. How do
I get this read only problem fixed?

Go into task manager and see if you see a instance of Inventor running in the process tab.
Kill it....unless of course you have one open on purpose

Nothing else is running in the task manager.

Can you post the file to customer files?

Don't know why I didn't think of this before. In Windows explorer make
sure in ....Tools.....Folder Options.....View tab, make sure you have "Show
hidden files and folders" checked. Then maybe you will see a file with a
.lck or something like that extension. Try renaming it or moving it out of
the folder and seeing if that helps.
