ALG Access Control in ProjectWise

Area: Geometry
Original Author:Sanders Thomas, Bentley Technical Support Group



I am trying to load InRoads ALG file in ProjectWise and receiving a message "Unable to lock file". The file does not open. I can export the file and open locally, but it does not work when I import the file back to ProjectWise.



Go to Tools < Application Add-ins. Check to make sure you have "Variable Manager" toggled on.

Go to Tools > Variable Manager> Command Behavior, and ensure that "Geometry - Alternate Workflow with ProjectWise" is selected. This command will automatically check-out and check-in the ALG and should resolve this issue.
