There are some modules that are read only and others that are not (see padlock icon in screenshot).  How can I make none of them read only?
I got this code from the machine of someone who has been sacked.
It's a web application in visual studio 2008 using C# asp.net 3.5

I don't see any padlock icons.

Do you use source control? If so, files are going to be read only unless they are checked out.

There is a padlock icon next to IDAL.cs.
What confuses me is that the padlocks are not everywhere.
We're using something called SAMI for source control.  I did check it out.

I think I've found the reason for the padlock.  It's simply that one can't edit a module while the program is running.  The reason for my confusion is that I'm putting in a streamwriter to create a text file at certain points.  At some points when I run the debugger the text file is created.  At other points not.  It's as though the debugger is debugging the program before I made my changes even though it appears to look at them.

Ok, I see it now on the tab.  I was looking in the grid.

I solved it myself.  The problem was that a directory required by the program had been deleted.
