Document 698

Message: I can't write on file (filename).log

Version: 3.5x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Problem

This message appears during a compilation:

I can't write on file 'filename.log'.

Explanation

You have tried to start a new compilation of your document while a previous compilation is still in progress. The formatter locks the files during compilation, so the .log file is inaccessible.

Solution

Make sure any previous compilations have completed and no other instances of the TrueTeX Formatter are running before you try to compile again.
