File locked by another application: PPT save problem?

In Presenter, when trying to record narration, publish a presentation, or preview slides, most of the time I get the error message that "This file is locked by another application...". I think I've tracked this down to a conflict with Windows Live Mesh. Does anyone have a workaround other than turning off Live Mesh every time I want to use Presenter?

Hello and welcome to the forums! I just tested this with my Windows Mesh setup which only syncs My Documents folder and had no trouble working on documents located in this folder. You might want to see what folders you are syncing and turn some off and on to see if a specific folder makes a difference.

Also, if you have a document open on both computers at the same time, that might be a problem.
