I am working in an environment where hundreds of MS Word documents are processed automatically... every now and then this "File In Use" dialog pops up and all I have to do is hit the "Read Only" button to release this document.
Does anyone has a tip on how to detect if this dialog is up and maybe have a routine to close this dialog? Even if we have to build a Windows Service, or a MS-DOS service with VBScript that detects this dialog every 5 minutes would be great.
I understand I have to look for the owner file (starting with ~$ in the file name) and I understand I can delete that file to release the lock. Just have to figure out on how to click the ok button once that happens.
