DigitalOnAir.exe keeps locking files I need to overwrite

Postby a_ruehl » Thu Dec 08, 2011 3:16 pm

Hi,

As the title says, DigitalOnAir.exe keeps locking files I need to overwrite.
It's a file which is downloaded every hour and should be overwritten.

This works fine as long as the file hasn't been played yet.
Once it is played i can't overwrite it.
I then have to exit OnAirRadioStudio in order to make it work again.

The category of the file is set to dynamic, obviously.

I've tried a tool named "unlocker" which only makes DRS crash so that's not an option.
I've tried renaming the file and changing paths.
I'm runnning DRS2006PRO on XP SP3.

Any ideas :?:

I am also having the same problem. This has only been happening recently after many years of use of v 2.1. Does anyone have any suggestions please?

Same problem here, but it occurs only on some days (XP Pro, file is on server)

Yes it seems to be only at certain times; possibly related to when a playlist has the file incorporated in it. The file gets locked up, loses its read/write permissions and can only be deleted once DRS onair has been exited. This has not always happened.

In our case the reason for blocking the file was a machine where DRS played the news, stopped and waited for the next hour to play the news. The stopped DRS blocked the file. We inserted a shuffle with silent files for the time between the news and now all is well...
