We updated our MicroStation from 11 to 16 and we lost our "File in use"-notfication. Now MicroStation just opens file straight with read only mode, without specifying who is the user that have the file opened.
Has anyone else noticed this behaviour or is this just somekind of bug on our end ?
In big office this is really frustrating when you dont know the exact person who you could ask the releasing the file.
Just noticed same behaviour trying to fix this corrupt file. It also opens after repair as read-only without notice and most tools do not work. Interestingly that implanting model header from seed file it can be opened normally. Seems it is another indication of file corruption.
Hmm.. Interesting. In our case that is not file-spesific and all the files works normally whenever some other user is not using the file. Only the notification has disappeared.
Do a restoredefaults action. Upgrading corrupts user preferences, had also strange defect after upgrade.
This method didn't work for us.
Hi Joonas Salmi,
How are you opening the files? From File\Open or by dragging the file and dropping it on MicroStation desktop icon?
Could you please check if the results are the same?
Are your files saved locally or on the network?
Do you know if there were any changes in the environment? Maybe Windows updates?
Do you know how MS_READONLY configuration variable is set?
