    File Locking

      I run an application that creates and deletes files very quickly.  It is failing because, I think, the Realtime scanner is locking the file.  If I disable that feature, the app runs just fine.  Do not have this problem with MS Security Essentials.  Any thoughts on what to recommend to the developers on this problem?

          Probably it is in the process of scanning the file. Any way to slow down a tad the rate of creation/deletion?


          Will ask our tech but as it not a common issue ie noone else complained the chance of a fix is low.

              The application is Aspen PIMS from Aspen Technology, Inc.   www.aspentech.com


              I have uninstalled the software but it was the version that came with the Dell Studio XPS 16 laptop.  I could reinstall and get the correct information if you need it.
