my name is venkat.we are using windows server 2003 as a file server.
our employees digitizes maps in auto cad.I have giver permissions read and write permissions but they are unable to save .dwg files.These permissions ok for xls files.when i save drawing files it says error "as it is used by another session you can save as xxxxx.tmp".If i give full permission it is working.But
it dangerous because somebody can delete these files.Please help me.
Someone else has the file open at the same time. You can't over write an already open file within AutoCAD.
You can find out who has the file open by looking on the Server and managing the shares/open files.
