iCDB.dat lock delays

Why does it take several minutes for the icdbnet server to release its lock of the iCDB.Dat file?

Is there any way to configure this to have a timeout and/or close and release quicker?


It is a very common and frustrating issue with users to attempt to copy project folders or compress backups etc.


  • I have a Dell Xeon E5-1620 w/32 GB ram and SSD drives and for a blank schematic it takes 3-5 minutes for the file to be released.
  • Watching the project via iCDB Server manager I can see also a client process called HDLProject start once you close the xDX session.
