Topic: File Locking/Access Denied Problem
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 53335

I have an Acrobat Exchange plug-in that stores some private data in the document's Info dictionary (Tech Note #5191, page 882), saves the document using the original file name, and closes the file.  That much works as planned, but afterward when I try to move the file, I get an access denied error.  If I close Acrobat all together, the file is released.  I am including the code so that somebody can help me clear all file locks.

Code snippet:

   AVDoc myAVDoc = AVAppGetActiveDoc();
   PDDoc myPDDoc = AVDocGetPDDoc(myAVDoc);
   PDDocSetInfo(myPDDoc, "PrivateKey", "Example", 8);

   ASFile myASFile = PDDocGetFile(myPDDoc);
   ASPathName myASPathName = ASFileAcquirePathName(myASFile);  // The only Acquire command
   PDDocSave(myPDDoc, PDSaveFull | PDSaveCollectGarbage, myASPathName, NULL, NULL, NULL);
   ASFileSysReleasePath(ASGetDefaultFileSys(), myASPathName);  // A Release command to complement the acquire command

   AVDocClose(myAVDoc, true);

Thank you in advance,
