View Full Version : Detect files in use - not in this machine

If I install a system over a previous version in a server, and the system is in use in a terminal, in SB4 for Clarion I get a log entry saying "locked", and I ended with an incomplete installation.
In SB5, would Start/Stop Delayed File Install perform the same type of control, but "live", so if someone is using the files the install won't run?
If not, how can I check that?

TIA,
Jorge Lavera

Jorge,

On SB4 for Clarion (and Standard and Web Edition) it should ask the user to reboot the system if a file is locked.

If a file is locked, a SB5 installation will also ask to reboot the machine to complete the installation.

Does this help?
