Hello,

I have a job that is based on a file trigger that is having issues. It is set to trigger when the file (*.zip mask) is released so I know that it is completly transfered. The users are dropping zip files but occassionally one will fail and the Visual Cron message says that the file could be password protected.

It is not password protected and the zip file opens fine from Windows Explorer; however Visual Cron has a problem with that zip and once Visual Cron encounters an error it holds a lock to the file. The users are no longer able to delete it to reupload it. I have log onto the VM and stop and restart the Visual Cron service in order to release the file lock.

Can anyone help me with this? Is there a check I should do first? Or once it tries to open the zip and fails is that it?

Thank you

Are you saying that VisualCron locks the file in the Archive - decompress Task when something goes wrong?

Yes, the .zip file is completly locked. No one can delete it remotely, locally, or using command line commands (del, deltree, etc). The Cron job shows it is awaiting another execution so it is not actively doing anything, but someone has to log onto the server to actually stop the cron service itself to make the file able to be moved out or deleted and then replaced with a different version to get the new file trigger to pick it up again.

We could not reproduce this but made a change anyway. Can you please test this version:
