Data Updated Failed: Access To The Path QMap.lck Is Denied

Quickmap Data Downloader may fail to update the data, reporting the following error:

Data update failed: Access to the path ‘\\Server\Data\QMap.lck’ is denied.

  3. Click the Logon tab.
  4. Change the account from Local System to another account that has Modify permission on the Quickmap data folder specified in the error message.
