Application cannot be edited on InTouch Window Maker start up


Error message: The application cannot be edited. Process “WindowMaker” on Computer “ComputerName” is editing the application.

If an InTouch application folder is copied while being open within WindowMaker for editing it will contain an application editing file which specifies which computer it is being edited with. The content of this file has the editing computer name stored within it, and if different (i.e. the application has been copied to a different PC with a different name and opened) the error message above will appear.


With WindowMaker and Window Viewer shut down, open the InTouch application folder and delete the file “appedit.lok”. The application can now be opened.
