FileOpen v3.3.6.0 - Won't Open When Different Program Has File Open

3 posts in this topic

I noticed a couple changes from v3.3.6.0 and 3.3.4.0 regarding FileOpen. Unfortunately, the changes have a negative impact for me. Here are the changes:

Fixed: Regression in FileOpen() where it wasn't allowed to open files in read mode if they were already open in write mode.

Added #1376: FileOpen() mode parameter is now optional. Default mode is read.

My problem is I use Putty (SSH/serial) to basically log to a text file which I then read with FileOpen. Unfortunately, 3.3.6.0 causes FileOpen to fail when I have Putty open. I've verified the issue by running 3.3.4.0. Anyone else run into this issue? Aside from reverting to the older version, does anyone have ideas on how to get around this issue without making a copy of the file? Shall I open a bug on the issue I'm seeing?

My validation process was poor because it seems the issue is present in 3.3.4.0 so this is the version it was introduced in.
