Error description

  • Problem
    Customer reports the following error when creating a project
    'Unable to create this project: Can't open projects index file
    for write'.
    
    It can happen when performing one of the following actions for
    the first time in a session :
    
     - creating a project
     - opening a module
     - running the item(), folder() or project() perms
    
    Investigation into that cause is continuing, the problem here is
    what happens after the error. The project is being created,
    without an entry in the project, and with ACL corruption (the
    Administrator is assigned a specific ACL entry). The lack of a
    project list entry means that attempts to do anything with
    modules in the project fail with DXL errors including references
    to 'null module' handles.
    
    To Reproduce
    I haven't found a method of locking the file outwith the addon,
    still working on it...
    
    Possible Workarounds
    I wouldn't recommend using the project created, try to avoid the
    initial problem instead i.e. don't create project while running
    Excerpt.
