access thread: RE: lock file disabled

Message #1 by "Vince Kavanagh" <vince@6...> on Fri, 1 Jun 2001 10:23:18 +0100
Hello Nick,

I had a similar problem once and the ISP told me that the database was

locked by a running system process.

I'm not sure if this correct, the only information I could find related to

permissions on the server.

Best Regards,

Subject: [access] lock file disabled

Hi all, i have an Access DB serving a web site and once a week i uesd to

update my database manually (stop IIS - copy the new database - paste to

the old in the same directory - start again IIS). Suddenly, i found that

the system dedied to execute the "paste" process telling me that the

database is used by other users tec. The same time, the lock file of the

database disappeared while many users where hitting the pages and

accessing the database.

The paradox is, when IIS runs i dont see the database's lock file, and

when i stop IIS the system refuses to paste the new db telling that it's

accessed by Internet users.

Can somebody figure out what happens??
