Workspace in use or Cannot be Created

September 23, 2011 Leave a comment

If you close FlashBuilder and it doesn’t shut down correctly, sometimes a .lock file will be left in the .metadata directory of your workspace.

If you try and restart FB with the .lock file present, you will get an error message about the workspace being in use. Either make sure the java program is killed or remove the lock file manually in order to reload FB.

This seems to happen to me every time I shut down with the latest version ]:
