Dear Fellow AutoHotKeyers,
We have an automated process that runs at night. One of the outputs of this job is a flat file. Recently, this process failed because another process had opened the file.
I would like to be able to use AHK to see which process has opened a specific file. Is this possible?
AHK to discern which Process is Holding a specific flat file

I've searched that too and it seems to be a very hard task finding the app that's locking the file with a script only, without using external programs like Process Explorer. You can check if the file is locked using AHK, but I have found no way to know what process is using it.
