the file may be checked out.
1. if you do not care about old revisions of the file, you can just
delete RCS/main1.fwb This will purge revisions but you should be able
to open the file.
2. You can try to verify if it is checked out and check it back in:
this should print revision history and say if one of the revisions
(perhaps the latest) is locked. You can try to check and unlock it by
c:\FWBuilder\ci -u your_file.fwb
You may need to set environment variable TZ to your timezone for this
3. It looks like your GUI is configured to open this file automatically
when it starts. Try to turn this off by editing the following registry
Either remove this key or change it vallue to 0, then try to start
fwbuilder again. It should come up with a standard "what do you want to
do" dialog, where you can choose "Open file". Navigate to your file and
see if its last revision is locked. You should be able to open it now
read-only or read-write, the program will present a dialog saying the
file is checked out and locked if you try to open it read-write. Click
on the button that says you want to open it anyway and proceed.
