Thread: Commit problem--User does not own lock on path

    Commit problem--User does not own lock on path

    Yes it\'s me again. I tried searching online & don\'t see a solution to this. When I commit I get this message.

    Commit failed (details follow):
    User Ron does not own lock on path \'/Trunk/bin/Release/c380.txt\' (currently
    locked by John)
    If you want to break the lock, use the \'Check For Modifications\' dialog.

    I don\'t see anything regarding any \'locks\' in the \'Check For Modifications\' dialog.
    I tried going to the highest folder & choosing \'release lock\', but I get the message \"There is nothing to unlock. No file has a lock in this working copy.\"

    Thanks
    Ron

    The other use also shows that he has no locks.

    I don\'t use TortoiseSVN but this
    http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/...locking-status
    seems to indicate that you click the \"Check Repository\" button to get information about locks held in other working copies.

    Yes, you need to first click on \"check repository\" in the check-for-modifications dialog. Then the locked files will show up and the \"break lock\" entry in the context menu shows up for those files.

    Or you can right-click on the locked file, choose \"get lock\" and then check the box \"steal lock\" to steal the lock from the other user.
