Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 

Edit_No_Soft_Locks


Short Description: Setting this value to 1 will disable the Client side Soft Locking

Description:
Beginning in releases 6.0.4, 6.5.1, and 7.0, users can add a NOTES.INI parameter EDIT_NO_SOFT_LOCKS=1 to their client's notes.ini.

The EDIT_NO_SOFT_LOCKS=1 ini parameter was added as a workaround for customers who had applications that did not work well with soft locking. The parameter essentially reverts locking behavior back to the R5 style, where soft locking did not exist. This parameter disables all soft locking in all databases accessed by that client. It cannot be enabled on a database by database basis.

none

Edit_No_Soft_Locks=0/1
