SME must have 'Exclusive Access' to apply updates. There are various methods to make sure there are no users logged into the database.


1) The easiest method is to check if you can rename the sme5.exe executable. If you can then all users are out of the program.
a. Highlight the sme5.exe and rename to sme5.1.exe - if you can rename then rename it back to sme5.exe as shown in the video linked below.
