Err: process cannot acccess the file..


Hi all,

We are getting problems at some point saving or overwriting file-templates tot the server after having setup a virtual directory for using the evmnu-openfile function. The error message which popups after a while says:

"Server was unable to process request. -->The process can not access the file. "E:\BPC\Data\Webfolder\appsetname\appname\eExcel\Reports\ - filename" because it is being used by another process"

The problem is gone when the virtual directory is removed. But obviously we need the virtual directory. Placing almost 50+ file templates in the wizard folder for enabling the evhot function is not the best workaround.

I suspect it has to do with some backup-software which runs on the server, enabling users to restore files when deleted or overwritten. But I'm not sure. Has anyone experienced this problem, or any ideas whats causing it and/or how it can be fixed. Any help as always is much appreciated.
