Unable to open a project in Project Pro : project seems to be locked for status report update ?

Brass Contributor

Hi all, 


I do not get to open a project with Project Professionnal (desktop) for update, the error message saying : 

"Unable to open the project in R/W mode, because it is locked for the Status Report update on the server". 

(Sorry for the FR translation) 


Did anyone already encounter this ?


Thank you,

After reading a post on a blog, I cleaned the MS Project cache (AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\MS Project\Cache) and it works now.

Thank's for helping.
