I am trying to compile a job, xlwwf, and the compile processed failed due to the error below. I've been geting the same error since last week.

the Build command finished on Mon Nov 23 11:49:30 2015.
BASE build is OK
COMP_ATM is true - run build command
ERROR: /work/n02/n02/py015531/xlwwf/ummodel/fcm.bld.lock: lock file exists,

/work/n02/n02/py015531/xlwwf/ummodel: destination is busy.

Build failed on Mon Nov 23 11:49:33 2015.

output at:

Is that a normal error?

Hi Fadzil,

I think you need to delete the "lock" file that is listed above:


That file tells the compiler to stop because a previous attempt at compiling is either still going on or got stopped mid-way.
