PRB: Creating File with Exclusive Access Allows Concurrent Use
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) 3.1
When an application calls the OpenFile() API and specifies the OF_CREATE and OF_SHARE_EXCLUSIVE flags, the created file is not open for exclusive access. Another application can also open the file.
To create a file and open it for exclusive access, an application must create the file, close the file, and open it for exclusive access.
OpenFile() passes its parameters to MS-DOS Interrupt 21h. OpenFile() and Interrupt 21 exhibit the same behavior in this regard.
