How to unlock a locked project

Postby Paul » 13 Jun 2017, 19:15

I created a project under QE2016. Following a computer crash while waiting fixes, I downloaded a 3-day trial of QE2017 and worked on a file. When I got things fixed and re-installed QE2016 and tried to open the file I had edited under QE2017, I get the message "This Project is Locked. Changes cannot be saved.(315)"

I am running Win10 on a PC but not the Creators update.

How can I unlock the Project?

Thank you.

Likely it is just that an older version cannot open a newer version--but there is a menu option to backsave to 2016 from 2017.

I can backsave the 2017 project for you. You would need to upload it here after zipping it, but it has to be a small zip file (500k if I recall). Else upload it to a document sharing site like dropbox and provide a download link. I would backsave and upload it and provide the download link.

Thank you, Mike

Thank you, Mike! It is larger than 500k zipped, so I put it in Dropbox. It seems I'll need your email address to share the file.

Hi Paul,

***removed email addy***

You gotta reassemble the email address...but I've had my email address harvested by spam bots off of forums before.
