The resource '**rive.vcf' is locked by application

Asked by Hugo Versteeg on 2009-05-24

Adressbook: Although the file *.vcf is OK, it can't be accessed from Kontact. Without any visible cause this happened suddenly after many years without any trouble. Restart won't remedy the appearance of an error message "The resource '/home/hugo/hugo/adressen/prive.vcf' is locked by application" and the permissions with the file seem OK

Thank you Mark!

It seems the workaround solved everything.

I'remeber to shut Kontact down myself in the future.

Kind regards, Hugo Versteeg
