Dear Colleagues,

when I try to import an WSXZ file in Studio, the process stops due to the error "The process cannot access the file Worldserver.ldb because it is being used by another process". Other colleagues can import the same packages in their computers, so I assume the problem must be related with my computer or settings. I have tried to unlock this .ldb file, but it doesn't work either and I have also searched the SDL KB without success.
Can anyone help me with this? In the meantime I'm working with the .xlf file, but I would like to solve the problem for future assignments.

Thank you all in advance!

Same problem in Studio 2015 Sep 10, 2015

I know your post is quite old, but I am having the same problem in Studio 2015.
How did you manage to solve it?

Repair/Update SDL WorldServer Components Oct 7, 2015

A colleague of mine just had the same problem. What we did was repair the SDL WorldServer Components (Windows Control Panel -> Programmes and Features), after which Studio suddenly said that they are no longer up to date. So we downloaded the current version from the KB and now everything is back to normal.

Where do I find the SDL WorldServer Components in windows 10 and Studio 2015? I don´t see it in programs and features.
