vbscript if PDF is open
Posted on 2011-10-05
I know this is a bit of an odd issue - but I need to test if a PDF file is in use/open. I have a backend workflow system designed to grab/process PDF files, however these same PDF's are visible to the users and we have an issue now and then where the file is still 'opened' by the user and thus cannot be grabbed by the workflow.
I have checked with the Workflow vendor and they don't have any way built in to test for this and they don't consider being unable to grab the file an error (if the system generated an error I could work with it).
