Two users opened the same file at the same time with file on Win2K Server

I just had a problem with a file that could not be saved. After a little investigation I discovered that two users had the same file open at the same time. This is with both users using InDesign CS2 and saving to a Windows 2000 Server. Any ideas how this even happened? The only thing I can think of is if they both opened the file at the exact same time but even that I doubt. I guess the more likely possibility is that the user on 10.5 (which we have had a lot of problems with, it's hard to tell how many of them are CS3 problems (yes CS3) and how many are Windows 2003 Server problems) had InDesign CS2 flake out and not tell her the file was open. Has anybody else seen this? The other user was using 10.4. Both computers have the most recent updates for the OS and for their various adobe products.

I have videos on mov file and my quick time player does not play them.
The MOV file container is the generic QT file container. Any audio and video data compatible with the computer system used to create the file can be placed in the MOV file container. Unfortunate, other systems cannot play the file unless they too are configured with the same components as those used to create the file. The normal procedure here is to use the Finder "Info" or alternative media play "Inspector" window to determine what codecs were used to create the original file and, if they are available for your Mac, install them on your system for playback use. Also be advised that some "legacy" codecs may require playback in the QT 7 Player for proper QT support.
I opened with other players, there is no sound. Then I opened the same file on my windows 7, it plays perfectly with the sound and everything? What is the problem?
This would indicate these players either access your QT codec component configuration which does not include the required codec or the app has its own built-in codec support which does not include the required audio codec but you Windows 7 media player is configured with the required codec support. This may incidate the use of a really old codecs that may or may not be available/supported on a Mac any longer.

  • Assigning a person to two projects at a same time with different salary

    Dear All,
    Can any one guide me how to assign a person for two projects at the same time, this can be done by assigning him to the two projects as 50%, here the issue is his salary is varied from one client to other.
    please tell me how to do in the SAP
    Thanks in advance

    Hi,
    Will you record the time worked for each project and pay accordingly, or will you pay 3 & 8 hours fixed?
    If the second one is the case, what comes to my mind is you can assign him in IT0008 a base salary with wage type PR01 and this would refer to the full-time project.
    The the salary for the second projects may be given to the employee via IT0015 in terms of amount directly or hours.
    However, this scenario has nothing to do with the project system module or timesheet data.

  • How do i create one source file that feeds two users on the same pro book?

    how do i create one source file/folder of photos that feeds two users on the same pro book?

    Well you can do exactly the same with a folder of photos, just put in the Users/Shared folder.
    Iphoto is a mite more complex than this. It's a database and so there's a bit more involved.
    For iPhoto 09 (version 8.0.2) and later:
    What you mean by 'share'.
    If you want the other user to be able to see the pics, but not add to, change or alter your library, then enable Sharing in your iPhoto (Preferences -> Sharing), leave iPhoto running and use Fast User Switching to open the other account. In that account, enable 'Look For Shared Libraries'. Your Library will appear in the other source pane.
    Any user can drag a pic from the Shared Library to their own in the iPhoto Window.
    Remember iPhoto must be running in both accounts for this to work.
    If you want the other user to have the same access to the library as you: to be able to add, edit, organise, keyword etc.
    Quit iPhoto in both accounts. Move the Library to the Users / Shared Folder
    (You can also use an external HD set to ignore permissions, a Disk Image or even partition your Hard Disk.)
    In each account in turn: Double click on the Library to open it. (You may be asked to repair the Library Permissions.) From that point on, this will be the default library location. Both accounts will have full access to the library, in fact, both accounts will 'own' it.
    However, there is a catch with this system and it is a significant one. iPhoto is not a multi-user app., it does not have the code to negotiate two users simultaneously writing to the database, and trying will cause db corruption. So only one user at a time, and back up, back up back up.

  • Can two users work on different files of the same project?

    Sorry if this has been asked already...but can two users work
    on different files of the same project? How would that work? Would
    it work something like this?
    1. From RoboHelp 7, user A checks out the entire project.
    2. User A checks in the files they are not working with.
    3. User B checks out the project but can only 'edit' the
    files that have been checked in by user A.
    Is this how the source control works?

    That's the basic idea. User A doesn't actually have to check
    out the whole project, though. RSC will selectively check out only
    the files that are actually getting changed. Both writers will have
    a complete copy of the project on their local machines, but the
    files are read-only until they are literally checked out, which is
    on an as-needed basis unless the writer explicitly checks them out.

  • Share a library between two users on the same mac?

    It is possible to share a library between two users on the same mac?

    It's doable. As it's been pointed out Aperture has no provisions for file locking so you can't have two users accessing the library at the same time. This includes having one user having the library open only for browsing. Aperture doesn't have a +Read Only+ mode, when it opens the library, even if you make no changes to any images, the library will be written to.
    This also means you can't have one user open the library and then stop using Aperture but still have the library open and then have another copy of Aperture open on the library.
    Of course if you have two copies of Aperture running even they are on different libraries you'll be in violation of the license and you'll have bigger problems to worry about then a toasted library.

  • How to share iTunes library between two users on the same Mac

    We have recently bought a Macbook Pro and have successfully transferred the old PC information onto the Mac.  But, the iTunes library from the PC has now just gone into the old user acct.  I am now confused as to which iTunes user name I connect my devices?  Is there a way to merge these two iTunes through the user accts?
    Thanks,
    I feel like I learning about computers all over again!

  • Two users in the same Mac accessing one TimeCapsule

    Hi,
    How can i make two user accounts in the same Mac access simultaneously the same TimeCapsule?
    I've tried setting them to use accounts to connect to TimeCapsule as well as using a single password for TimeCapsule.
    But i keep having the same problem. When one user accesses the time capsule the other gets ejected or the TimeCapsule folder appears with a forbidden sign.
    What do i have to do?
    Please help.
    Thanks in advance

    I think i understand what is happening.
    Leopard mounts the TimeCapsule disk using mount_afp command and any disk mounted with mount_afp will automatically have as owner <user>:staff and read and write permissions only to the owner. All other users have access denied.
    (If anyone knows how to change the default permissions of mount_afp please reply!)
    If like me, you have two user accounts in the same Mac (lets say user1 and user2) and use fast user switching a lot like i do, since it is a family computer, you'll have serious problems since what happens is the following:
    1. Mount the Timecapsule in user1.
    2. Fast user switching to user2.
    3. The TimeCapsule will appear unmounted in user2
    4. Mount the TimeCapsule in user2.
    5. List the /Volumes folder and you'll see something like this
    drwx------ user1:staff /TimeCapsule
    drwx------ user2:staff /TimeCapsule-1
    No problem... I can live with having two mounts for the same network disk.
    The problem is the following...
    6. Fast user switch to user1 again.
    7. Open a finder window
    8. On the left the TimeCapsule is listed as a network drive (as expected) and is shows as mounted!
    However... The association has changed and once i click the TimeCapsule icon in the sidebar it now points to /Volumes/TimeCapsule-1 and therefore user1 has permission denied.
    9. I opened a terminal window with user1 and went to /Volumes/TimeCapsule and everything was ok!.
    So the conclusion is... the finder window sidebar TimeCapsule is pointing to a Volume it shouldn't be...
    How is it possible to correct this situation???
    Please help! I just want a way to have two users on the same machine using the same time capsule at the same time.
    Thanks!

  • Two users (on the same Mac) using same RAID simultaneously?

    O.K. I know you should never never ever connect two different Macs to the same RAID unless using Xsan. . .
    How about connecting two users on the same Mac simultaneously?
    In other words, can I have one user manipulating data on the RAID in the background while reading the data using a second user (on the same Mac)?
    Thanks,
    Ed

    That depends on the application in question.
    Since all the data requests are coming from the same Mac, you don't have the issues you would have if you had two different machines talking at the same time.
    However, it now depends on whether the application(s) you're using supports file locks.
    As long as the application that's manipulating the data properly locks the part of the file it's working on, and that the application you're using to read the file reads the locks and knows whether or not it's OK to use that part of the file, you should be OK.

  • How do I share one itunes account between two users on the same computer

    How do I share one itunes account between two users on the same computer without taking up twice as much space on my hard drive?

    You would need to move the itunes folder to a location that both users have permissions to access such as the Shared folder or any folder on the root level of the macintosh HD.
    You can find instructions here http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1203 This method allows you to share the content without sharing the same library.

    Hello there - how can I share my iTunes library between two users on the same computer? I put the library in a shared folder between both and have selected this library on both as well, but when I update iTunes with music etc it only appears on one?

    Thank you Joe - I tried this but it's only showing a teensy amount of music - the stuff on the second users account as opposed to the giagntic library on the 'main' account. I actually went to a Genius Bar and they said that apple doesn't really want you to share music between accounts - parents don't want to hear their kids music etc. Which seemed strange, but it might be the case sadly   Thanks anyway!

  • Can two users on the same Mac sync contacts by using the same Apple ID in the iCloud settings?

    Can two users on the same Mac sync contacts by using the same Apple ID in the iCloud settings?

    Hi Barney,
    That's exactly what I want. I have a personal user and a business user on my MacBook Pro. I want both users to have the same contacts so if I add a contact while I'm logged into my personal user, it will show up when I'm logged into my business user. I want both contacts books to be exactly the same; like you said. So, I used my business user AppleID when I enabled iCloud for my personal user and I enabled iCloud for my business user with that Apple ID as well. For my personal user, I selected Contacts and Calendars to sync with iCloud. For my business user, I selected everything to sync with iCloud. The problem is... it didn't change anything. I restarted my computer to see if that would do anything but nothing happened. I'm not super savvy with Apple products, so maybe I'm completely confused.
    Hi Xeni,
    Thank you for your response, as well.

  • How to share iphoto with two users in the same imac maverick

    I can´t find the way to share iphoto/itunes with two users in the same imac with maverick software

    In conclusion, the new software is worse than the old one, really?  Because in my old mac I could share easily without copy with an external USB
    It's not iPhoto that dropped the ball but the system.  I believe it was Mavericks that broke the Shared folder compatibility for iPhoto, not iPhoto itself.
    Also having the library on an external HD is a good way of freeing up space on the boot drive to assure optional system and application performance.

  • TS2972 is it possible to use home sharing between two users on the same computer?

    My wife and I have itunes accounts and want to be able to share music we have each bought on our accounts. We have tried setting up the home sharing on our PC but it doesn't show up on the screen. Can anyone please help?

    "Is it possible to use home sharing between two users on the same computer?"
    No. Home sharing is used to connect two running instances of iTunes across a network. When you switch users on the computer all applications running on the other profile are suspended.
    You can however share your respective media folders so that they are visible in either profile and then copy over any content that you want, or you could create a single joint library which you use when either user is logged in.
