"Sharing Violation" when trying to save a project

Recommended Posts

I had a Cakewalk project idea on the go, which eventually turned into a good idea . . . so, I renamed it and moved it to a folder in Cakewalk Projects directory . . . then opened the project and saved it using a per project Cakewalk folder.  Basic stuff ? Now, when I open the next day and try try to save it I get this "Sharing Violation" message, like it's in use somewhere else in Windows ? . . . the only way to keep my new changes is to do a "Save As"

So, now I have 7 project versions, because of this. It's like The Edge of Tomorrow movie . . . every day this error repeats itself. Once I do a "Save As" I can properly save all my edits . . . until tomorrow, when I get the "Sharing Violation" message again . . . have to do "Save As" to a new version.

Anyone experienced this ? . . . and know a way out of this perpetual time loop I'm trapped in ?

Using anything than needs an elicense?

If so, this was the problem reported in this thread around on page 2

Scook, nothing in my Cakewalk world should need an eLicense . . . but I do have HaLion Sonic by Steinberg loaded as VST in this project which runs on the eLicense . . . you think that's the issue ? . . . I haven't seen this in the many other Cakewalk projects where I use HaLion Sonic.

Same Issue here for several weeks now. Still hoping for an update of the elicenser-app from Steinberg . . . it's annoying

I read the thread scook was referring to . . . seems there is no fix for this yet, all the software developers have to figure this out, so the rest of us just have to use the workaround "Save As"

Hey,  I have this problem now too.

 

I have a workaround.   Freeze HaLion before save.   Then when you re-open unfreeze.

Steinberg has fixed this but have not released the patch to elicenser. They sent me a patch over a month ago.
If you need it PM me and I can forward the link.

I'm getting the same thing too.

The workaround I found has been to alternately "save as" 2 different versions of the title such as [Title] and [Title1]

Ah just got this too with a project with Halion Sonic in it! I remembered there being an issue and search came up with this thread. Does anyone know if they have issued a fix yet?

PM Noel Borthwick, He's got a link to a patched elicenser. That one works.

@Simeon Amburgey Thanks can you confirm that their official update fixes the issue?

It appears to be fixed!
Here are two scenarios I have tried.

Open Previous Project and Save without doing a SAVE AS - FIXED

Started an Empty Project, Loaded VSL Synchron Pianos and HALionSonic - Save - FIXED

I also was able to save some previous broken projects with their pre-release version. It also appears the version number was bumped up a little more as well.
I would say go get it.
