To allow its users to safely edit a database file that Windows users may also be accessing and updating, the Easysoft ODBC-Access Driver uses a locking information file (.ldb).
The driver uses a .ldb file to:
The Easysoft ODBC-Access Driver may have to create and delete a .ldb file as well as write to it. If directory permissions prevent the Easysoft ODBC-Access Driver from writing to/creating a .ldb file, the driver may return a "Could not open/create lock file, check sharing permissions" error.
If you get this error when opening a database file that Windows users do not require access to, specify an alternative .ldb file directory with the
lockfile data source attribute. Specify a directory where you and other users who connect to the data source have write access to. For example:
lockfile = /tmp/Nwind.ldb
