Scan error - Database locked?

Hi guys. Can someone please tell me why I am getting this error "Scan error - Database locked?" when trying to scan my folders? I did a scan yesterday and it worked just fine. Is there some sort of restriction?

No, this means that another prosess or thread keeps the database open, preventing FS-UAE Launcher from using it. I have gotten sporadic reports about this from others as well.

If you have tried restarting FS-UAE Launcher and it still does not work, the most likely reason is a lingering FS-UAE Launcher process (that did not shut down properly, but hangs instead, keeping the database open). Try using the task manager to kill off any fs-uae-launcher processes. If that does not help, a reboot surely will

Thanks Frode, a restart did the trick. Why didn't I think of this before
