Attempt to open the file for write with FileOpen(). It will fail if the file is locked.

This might be due to missing write permissions to that file as well...

Not native to AutoIt. There are third-party apps you can call. Search the forums, this has come up before.

As for not opening it: How were you planning on writing to the file without opening it?
