project already open

I have begun to get the message:
The project is already open and cannot be used. Another VTune Performance Environment session has opened it.
What does this mean? (I can guess). No one else should be using my VTUNE_USER_DIR. It seems that perhaps I finished something incorrectly, perhaps quitting more(1) before it finished with my output?
Is there some file I can remove/change to let vtl know that I am no longer using the project?
Thanks,
Jim Fry

I think I saw that once when i ran a command line project using vtl, and then opened a vtlec project at the same time.

Did you try running the ActivtyController, see if it sees the project open? If so, you could close it from there.

$ ActivityController

or

$ man ActivityController # for more info

cheers

ActivityController says:

You are not currently running any Activities!

This message is also symptomatic of a corrupted project file (see http://www.intel.com/support/performancetools/sb/cs-006211.htm).

Iguess that other user is using this tool with same user account, or VTune Analyzer has exited but some components are still alive (remained) in the system.

You may use "ps -ae" to check if some VTune Analyzer related processes in the list, so you can kill them first then use vtl.
