Project stays locked even after checking in and checking out RRS feed

  • Question

  • Every time we check in a project – the next time we try to check it out – we get an error that it is already locked. We are both following exactly the same procedures as everyone else.

    - I try to Open my project – In Project Professional for Editing and I get this message:

      "This project cannot be opened in read-write mode because a previous checkin for this project is not complete"

    - I verified the Check in My Project option and my project is not there:

    - To “fix” this problem – I open Microsoft Project using the Computer login

    - I then go to File – Info – Manage Accounts and I delete the user and then re-create it – exactly the same way.

    After this – I go back to Microsoft Project Server and my project plan will open.

    Any thoughts?

  • Make sure your active cache is empty.  The active cache is not available on the ribbon or the quick access toolbar, so you need to add it.  The button is called Clean Up Cache.
