VMware tools have an open handle to a file

    Folks,

    I use VixVM_CopyFileFromGuestToHost API to copy file from VM guest to Host. But sometimes(very rare). I found that VMware tools have an open handle to the file in the VM. Whenever I do any operations pn the file in the VM, I get RC = 5 , access denied errors. Any idea here why it happens?

    Any help here is much appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance,

    -Mani.
