Overlapping File Lock Exception - Java Exception

I am getting a java error that says OverlappingFileLockException when launching a new vision client.
It means a process is trying to access a file that is already locked out by another process.

Does anyone know how I’d go about trying to troubleshoot this java issue?

It is only happening on one of our PCs.

I’m getting the same error, but it’s only happening when we retarget from one specific project on our gateway to another (on the same gateway). Were you ever able to resolve or troubleshoot this?
I’m on Ignition 7.9.7, not 8 yet.

I’m experiencing the same error in v8.1.3. I’m also trying to retarget (system.util.retarget() function) between two projects on the same gateway. This seems to be some implementation or config issue that isn’t covered in the documentation.

The retargeted project does open, but this error message remains and either forces the retargeted project to reload again or selecting exit quits out of the client.


Any help is much appreciated!
