Hi GoldSim team,
We have recently switched to using Sharepoint synced with OneDrive. This means that if I am working on files that reside on my hard drive, they are constantly being autosaved and sync'd with the sharepoint folder in the cloud. GoldSim has no issues with using GoldSim in this situation, although it can allow multiple users to access the file which can result in multiple versions.
However, there is a major issue with using Microsoft Excel files for input/output. If the Excel Data File is open when you start a simulation, there are major sharing violations and the Excel file has to be shut down, sometimes requiring Task Manager, and occasionally leaving Zombie instances.
Obviously, the solution is to always close the Spreadsheet before starting the simulation. Realistically, that gets forgotten occasionally and makes a mess.
Is there a way for GoldSim to check for the sharing violation and provide a gentler way to let the user know to shut down Excel?
