Paragon go virtual trial version cannot get exclusive lock (P to V)
Posted on 2010-11-29
I am testing a product called Paragon Go Virtual which supposedly takes the pain out of doing P to V. I am trying to convert a very simple Pentium 4 windows XP setup to VMware. However, during trial I keep getting the error message "unable to get exclusive lock" of the disk or something and when I try to browse the option to show which processes are causing this there are more than 50 of them and no matter what I do, it won';t close the processes. Next I tried to boot in protected mode so that it won't load any programs at startup and it got even worse. The paragon software says again it couldn't get exclusive lock but if you browse the processes, the list is empty. I logged on as Administrator in Both cases.
Could someone point me to how they solve this exclusive lock issue?
Thanks and regards,
