I am trying to use automation for library management and part creation. I am currently working on pin mapping so I am accessing the Part Editor through automation. I can access the data with my script but then, when I go back to the GUI and try to modify some parts, I get the following message when I open the Part Editor:
Opening "SomePartPartition" read only because it is already reserved by "MyName@MyMachine:Part Editor:".
It looks like there is a lock somewhere. I tried the following simple script to try to close correctly the PartEditor but I still get the message above:
Set objPartEditor = CreateObject("MGCPCBLibraries.PartsEditorDlg")
dbFile = "C:\Path\to\my\library.lmc"
Set pdbDB = objPartEditor.OpenDatabaseEx(dbFile, False)
Set objPartEditor = Nothing
Do any of you have an idea how to get back read/write access from the GUI?
I finally found where the tool is to unreserve partitions. It's in "Setup->Unreserve Partitions..."
I really have issues with how the documentation is built and I always have to spend so much time to find the correct piece of information...
