I am getting the error "Unable to open file in exclusive mode".

Applies to
  • Connexion Client

This can be corrected by using the Compact/Repair tool.

1.Go to File > Local File Manager

2.Select the file path of the file that is causing the error

3.Click Compact/Repair

After the tool completes running, check to see if the error appears again.  If it does, the file may have become corrupt and need to be replaced.

Additional information

Please additional information about how to create a new local file.
