Errorcodes if Open files


Hi,

I need to indicate to user that files are open (eg: MSoutlook.exe is running therefore PST's are open). Can I safely assume that I can trap $20 and $33 or could there be more errorcodes ?

1)
  { The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. }
  ERROR_SHARING_VIOLATION = $20;
  {$EXTERNALSYM ERROR_SHARING_VIOLATION}
2)
  { The process cannot access the file because }
  { another process has locked a portion of the file. }
  ERROR_LOCK_VIOLATION = 33;
  {$EXTERNALSYM ERROR_LOCK_VIOLATION}

Regards
Allan

Hi,

My application cannot disturb the user except on 'Open Error'. For other errors I have to fill a log and continue silently.
