Intermittent Read Only file status! ...

Post by JulianHicks » Mon Nov 13, 2017 12:53 pm

Following an unexpected message, brought to my attention by my wife when trying to open existing .XLS files with PlanMaker 2016 Free, I've discovered an intermittent problem whereby sometimes the message "The document xxxxxxx is Write protected. Do you want to open read-only?" is issued when doubling clicking on an .XLS file in File Explorer.

We're using Softmaker FreeOffice 2016 Version 767.0516 with Windows 7. The files are on a NAS mapped as the N: drive.

In response, I can click on 'No', close the PlanMaker window with the X box in the top right, return to File Explorer and the next time I double click to open, sometimes I get the same 'Read Only' message and sometimes it works and opens correctly. There is no consistency; it seems to happen to all my XLS files at some time or other.

Regards - Julian
