Hi,

When using the File open dialogue box within the dialogue box.. if you select the file and try to rename it says the file is locked even though it is not open. Any ideas to resolve this will be great!!!

Many Thanks

Josh

It works for me...

Using VB.Net 2005 Express on a WinXP Pro machine.

I added an OpenFileDialog control and a button to a form:

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog()
    End Sub

I ran it, and clicked the button causing the Open File dialog to appear.  Then I right clicked on a file and selected "Rename".  I gave it a new name and it worked without any errors.

Perhaps you could give us more details on your system setup and what it is your are doing...
