Please can I get some clarity.

I have been using Ver with few real problems and had decided to
upgrade to since that was what I thought was the recommended

I then found that is now stable but it was not clear whether or not
it was the recommended version.

I am using the Windows XP version.

Lock files are IMO about the *worst* way of doing it.

Why not a simple Pop Up that says "This file is already open -- Opening
another instance may introduce editing errors - Continue Y/N"
then leave it up to the user.
