You can lock out files in netViz by following the standard method via the OS

C:\Documents and Settings\lockmyfile>attrib /? ( lockmyfile as an example).

Displays or changes file attributes.  

ATTRIB [+R - -R] [+A - -A ] [+S - -S] [+H - -H] [drive:][path][filename]  [/S [/D]]

  +   Sets an attribute.

  -   Clears an attribute.

  R   Read-only file attribute.

  A   Archive file attribute.

  S   System file attribute.

  H   Hidden file attribute.


      Specifies a file or files for attrib to process.

  /S  Processes matching files in the current folder

      and all subfolders.

  /D  Processes folders as well.  

By setting the attrib to read only as seen below:

ATTRIB +R [drive:][path]filename

The result from the above will produce a read-only file.

We have no other method to lock a file at this time.
