Greetings,
I am trying to save a *.bat file (from Jarte editor)
which is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\valide\
But winExplorer tells me "can't save because already open in another program".
It is only open in Jarte.
How can I get system to let go of it?
Is there a freeware for this sort of thing?
Thanks....Vernon

Install a program called Unlocker. Links to it can be found in our Freeware DB in the File & Folder section. Once you install unlocker then locate the file in windows explorer and right-click, then choose Unlocker from the menu. It will tell you what has a hold on the file and includes an option to attempt unlock (or delete or move).

Have you tried "save to" and select another, open folder.

I've never paid anything for anything at filehippo but if you simply follow the Unlocker link itself it will take you to the creators website. I only added the FileHippo and Snapfile links because one time someone needed the program and the creators site was down. The creator does try to encourage a $5 donation but it is not mandatory.

Simply get the one that is right for you:
Unlocker 1.9.1 - 32 bit version
Unlocker 1.9.1 - 64 bit version
Unlocker 1.9.0 Portable - 32 and 64 bit
