Which process has locked a file?
« on: March 29, 2012, 03:28:52 PM »
I found an interesting blog

OldNewThing

It answers the question, "How can i find out, which process has locked a file?"

But the code is only in C. Does anybody want to transfer it to PB?
Thats something we can use from time to time ...

Code: [Select]
#include <windows.h>
#include <RestartManager.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int __cdecl wmain(int argc, WCHAR **argv)
{
 DWORD dwSession;
 WCHAR szSessionKey[CCH_RM_SESSION_KEY+1] = { 0 };
 DWORD dwError = RmStartSession(&dwSession, 0, szSessionKey);
 wprintf(L"RmStartSession returned %d\n", dwError);
 if (dwError == ERROR_SUCCESS) {
   PCWSTR pszFile = argv[1];
   dwError = RmRegisterResources(dwSession, 1, &pszFile,
                                 0, NULL, 0, NULL);
   wprintf(L"RmRegisterResources(%ls) returned %d\n",
           pszFile, dwError);
  if (dwError == ERROR_SUCCESS) {
   DWORD dwReason;
   UINT i;
   UINT nProcInfoNeeded;
   UINT nProcInfo = 10;
   RM_PROCESS_INFO rgpi[10];
   dwError = RmGetList(dwSession, &nProcInfoNeeded,
                       &nProcInfo, rgpi, &dwReason);
   wprintf(L"RmGetList returned %d\n", dwError);
   if (dwError == ERROR_SUCCESS) {
    wprintf(L"RmGetList returned %d infos (%d needed)\n",
            nProcInfo, nProcInfoNeeded);
    for (i = 0; i < nProcInfo; i++) {
     wprintf(L"%d.ApplicationType = %d\n", i,
                              rgpi[i].ApplicationType);
     wprintf(L"%d.strAppName = %ls\n", i,
                              rgpi[i].strAppName);
     wprintf(L"%d.Process.dwProcessId = %d\n", i,
                              rgpi[i].Process.dwProcessId);
     HANDLE hProcess = OpenProcess(PROCESS_QUERY_LIMITED_INFORMATION,
                                   FALSE, rgpi[i].Process.dwProcessId);
     if (hProcess) {
      FILETIME ftCreate, ftExit, ftKernel, ftUser;
      if (GetProcessTimes(hProcess, &ftCreate, &ftExit,
                          &ftKernel, &ftUser) &&
          CompareFileTime(&rgpi[i].Process.ProcessStartTime,
                          &ftCreate) == 0) {
       WCHAR sz[MAX_PATH];
       DWORD cch = MAX_PATH;
       if (QueryFullProcessImageNameW(hProcess, 0, sz, &cch) &&
           cch <= MAX_PATH) {
        wprintf(L"  = %ls\n", sz);
       }
      }
      CloseHandle(hProcess);
     }
    }
   }
  }
  RmEndSession(dwSession);
 }
 return 0;
}

Hi Theo,

Interesting indeed.
Here is some CC 4.04 code...
First part will create and lock a file named "C:\Tmp\LockedFile.txt",
the second part is a traduction of the C code you provided, it will check if our .txt file is locked and if so, it will provide which process is responsable and, of course, the corresponding .exe name.

Have fun...

Pierre

'How can i find out, which process has locked a file?

'Restart manager api.
' RmStartSession      is used to create a new Restart Manager session. A maximum of 64 concurrent session can be used at the same time.
'                     The session will encapsulate all of the actions required to do a setup, allowing you to stop/restart applications.
' RmRegisterResources takes in a list of resources that have to be "managed" by the Restart Manager in the current session.
'                     Such resources can be a file (that is to be replaced by the setup), a process (e.g. when upgrading an application) and a Windows Service.
' RmShutdown          shuts down the registered resources so that setup can proceed without being faced with files in use.
' RmRestart           restarts the registered resources that have been shut down previously by RmShutdown.
' RmEndSession        stops a session that has been created by RmStartSession previously.
' RmJoinSession       can be used to join a secondary installer to an existing Restart Manager session.
' RmAddFilter         allows to change actions that will be performed on applications, e.g. to prevent restart or shutdown of a given application.
' RmRemoveFilter      reverses filters added by RmAddFilter.
' RmGetFilterList     lists all of the filters applied by the RmAddFilter function.
' RmGetList           provides information of the applications and services that are using resources that were registered by means of RmRegisterResources.
'                     In case a system restart is needed, the reason is provided.
' RmCancelCurrentTask cancels a RmGetList, RmShutdown or RmRestart action in progress.

'Application type
'0    : RmUnknownApp:  The application cannot be classified as any other type. An application of this type can only be shut down by a forced shutdown.
'1    : RmMainWindow:  A Windows application run as a stand-alone process that displays a top-level window.
'2    : RmOtherWindow: A Windows application that does not run as a stand-alone process and does not display a top-level window.
'3    : RmService:     The application is a Windows service.
'4    : RmExplorer:    The application is Windows Explorer
'5    : RmConsole:     The application is a stand-alone console application.
'1000 : RmCritical:    A system restart is required to complete the installation because a process cannot be shut down. The process cannot be shut down because of the following reasons.
'                      The process may be a critical process. The current user may not have permission to shut down the process. The process may belong to the primary installer that started the Restart Manager.

Thanks Pierre, great you did that.

I remember that i needed such a code some years before but could not find it.
And C is like a book with a lot of seals to me.

Now that I know that you are here, I'll look for more interesting stuff to get translated.  ;D

Maybe this VBS script can help:


Domain = "---yourdomain---"
ServerName = "---yourservername---"

On Error Resume Next

Set fs = GetObject("WinNT://" & Domain & "/" & ServerName & "/LanmanServer")

For Each res In fs.Resources
   wscript.echo "_____________"
   wscript.echo "ResourceID: " & res.Name
   wscript.echo " Resource: " & res.Path
   wscript.echo " Opened by user: " & res.User
   wscript.echo " Locks: " & res.LockCount
Next

Yep, done.

The correction will have also to be made in WINAPI_II_05\RestartManager.inc

Yes, I have revised that file. For some reason, I had the dwSessionHandle parameter i this function and all the others below declared as BYREF instead of as BYVAL.
