How to Solve WonderWare Error “The Application Cannot be Edited…”

Problem

WonderWare can not open an application. It shows error message “The application cannot be edit. Process “” on computer “” is editing this application”.

Application Cannot be Edit Error

Solution

This is not an application edit lock issue (see WonderWare InTouch Window Maker Application Edit Lock) . Error message does not show “WindowMaker” on computer “??” is editing the application. File appedit.lok is not in application folder. And the application directory is writable. Actually, application directory shows 33 characters in directory name. WonderWare accepts maximum 144 characters in folder path. Removing extra characters should solve this problem.

File Name Too Long

Working Directory Name Up to 24 Characters

WonderWare Accepts Directory Name Up to 24 Characters
