Save problems in MDT3.01

While saving the file to the server we get the massage (not always):

"The file was opened for edditing by another user after your changes were
saved
file can be reopened for read-only".
or another massage like:
"Unable to save to drawing H:\..\..\*.dwg as it being accessed by another
session.
Drawing saved to H:\..\...\saveE9849.ac$".

The strange thing is that when you are looking in the server for the unknown
user you you find him to yourself!!!

We are using MCAD 3.01 on NT 4 file servers with ADLM license. workstation
are Win95'.

any help for the problem will be appreciated

Try turning off hardware acceleration. This is something a few of us are
dealing with, but if yours is the same problem, it's the first I've seen in
NT. The rest have been win95 or 98 systems. To my knowledge Autodesk will
not offer a solution. Maybe with the same problem in NT they'll look at it.
Anyway, turning off hardware acceleration or using a heidi driver other than
wopengl6.hdi cured the problem for me (other than the performance hit I took
by changing heidi drivers).

Also note that the qsave problem or locked file issue produces itself as a
result of performing a 3D orbit or shade command. Before performing one of
these commands you won't see the problem and starting a new session resets
the problem. So I suppose another work around would be to NOT use 3D Orbit
or Shade.

OOPS, after re-reading the post, I see your work stations are win95. I'm
sure the above will remedy the save thing but I don't think Autodesk cares
to much about us insignificant little win95 people :smileysad:
