What is LCK file?

This is a miscellaneous file with a non-specified format. A file containing the .LCK file extension is a locked file created using a variety of database software applications. The file is an access control file used to “lock” a file or a database from being changed or opened by more than one user at a time.
When you have a shared database file opened on your computer, and someone else tries to open the file, a .LCK file is created automatically. It prevents accidental overwrites, deletes, changes and possible data corruption by the second user, though the second user can view the contents of the database.
Once the primary user closes the LCK file, that file is automatically deleted by the software application. You cannot open the .LCK files manually since the corresponding applicants manage them.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the LCK file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the LCK file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the LCK file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the LCK file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the LCK file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the LCK file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
