I have some python scripts I have written to create a lot of objects. I write these, in code, to a couple of FGDB's. If I happen to open ArcCatalog in one of these FGDB's, the application falls over, saying it cannot gain a lock on it.
Is this stock behaviour in ArcCatalog? I have not ever done these things together before, so haven't seen it happen. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a way to stop it happening?
arcgisscripting.ExecuteError: ERROR 000464: Cannot get exclusive schema lock. Either being edited or in use by another application.
