When I am trying to rename a config file, ApplicationEdition.txt, I am getting pop up window message "This action can not be completed because the file is open in Java(TM) Platform SE Binary. Close the file and try again."
What does this message mean ? How do I close this file, if I don't see it open anywhere ? This file has been used when a cmd was executed, but that cmd has run successfully and its not stuck anywhere then how can this file still be open ?

Thanks

Can't tell. What operating system?
Maybe you opened the file with a BufferedReader and didn't close the Reader?

OS : windows 7

I just checked, BufferedReader is closed properly. How do I debug, where is this file open ?

Thanks

For Windows there are applications which you can download which will tell you what application has a file open. I don't know the names of any of them because I haven't had to use such a thing for a very long time. But you didn't say what operating system you're using -- for other operating systems there might also be tools, so google for them if that's your situation.
