cant save .xla addin(placed in shared folder) says its read only

  • Hi,
    I have created excel addin and placed in shared drive. Many files are using this excel. Also many users on different systems use this addin.
    Now I want to modify the addin and overwrite, but it says it is read only.
    I have asked all users whether they have addin in their excel, but answer is no.
    may be some excel instance is running.
    Is there someway to forcefully close this addin from machine which is using this?
    Thanks
    Regards
    Prasad

    Hi pprasad,
    Nice to meet you in ozgrid.
    Right click your file, click properties.
    If 'Read Only' is checked, uncheck it.
    Regards, junho

    Hi junho,


    I also have the same problem. This is not the problem for me. Do you have any other suggestions?
