Tech Tip: Unlocking a Structure file on Windows
PRODUCT: 4D Insider | VERSION: | PLATFORM: Mac & Win
Published On: June 3, 2000

If you are using 4D Insider to open a structure file and receive a message stating that the file is "locked", this means that the file is set to Read-Only mode.

To unlock it:

Right-click on the structure file in the Windows Explorer and select "Properties". A dialog box will open where the Read-Only option is selected.

De-select the Read-Only property, click Apply or close the window, and you will now be able to open the structure file with 4D Insider.
