During the creation of a parts database path, the following error message appears when the Next button is clicked to go to the field mapping step:
WarningThe database is used by another user.
This message has been found to occur when the default parts database paths, named "ansi-ieee_parts_database" and "iec_parts_database", have been deleted from the setup configuration. The only way to do this is by directly editing the setup.xml file since the Setup dialog does not allow these paths to be deleted.
This is a different situation than what causes the problem described in the Error - .MDB file in use or locked by another user article.
Do not remove the sections related to "ansi-ieee_parts_database" or "iec_parts_database" from the setup.xml file. There is usually no reason to directly edit the setup.xml file.
Make note of the settings on the Setup dialog.
Replace the setup.xml file with one from a workstation without the issue. The setup.xml file is located in the "Config" subfolder of the program data folder. Program data folder - Promis.eProgram data folder - Substation.
