Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a test document and Save it and leave it open. 2. Open the test document on another machine. 3. When trying to open a message prompt alerting it as a Read Only file is seen. 4. On this prompt choose to Open with "Open_Copy" option. 5. Edit to make arbitrary text changes. 6. Now try to save as the original name on the test document to the same location. 7. A message prompt saying "Error saving the document Untitled4: Access to the"file path" was denied is displayed. 8. Press "Ok" to this prompt. 9. Notice that the same prompt appears again immediately after clicking "Ok" to the first message. 10. Press "Ok" to this prompt again. 11. Notice that a message prompt saying "Error Saving the document Untitled4: General Error. General input/output error" appears again. 12. The above three prompts are conveying the fact that the file we are trying to Save is in Read Only mode and is currently in use. If this can be prompted clearly to the user for once, it can convey the right meaning at one shot.

I did reporter#s test, but not with 2 machines, but with an installed "AOO 4.0.0-Dev – German UI / locale [AOO400m2(Build:9701) - AOO400m2(Build:9701) - Rev. 1497734 Rev.1496828 2013-06-28]" on WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", Common 4.0-dev User Profile and a second Administrave installation of AOO4.0-dev. In step 7 I get a meaningful Message "Document is locked by user xyz since 01:23 am ..." Different behavior because of not using 2 different machines or because bug is fixed or different OS? @upperna Still a problem for you? Can you confirm the behavior with 2 AOO installations on the same PC?
