Issue

When attempting to start InVue Developer, an error message appears preventing it from proceeding:

The application cannot be edited.  Process "WindowMaker" on computer "PCNAME" is editing this application.

The Invue jobsite graphics and tagname database were last modified on a different computer.  Invue creates a "lock" file which prevents the application files from being changed on any other engineering computer than the original.

Product Line

Environment

Cause

The application (graphics generation) was done on a different computer than the current one.

Resolution

In the application directory, find and delete the appedit.lok file and re-start InVue Developer.
