Project Professional Checked OUT?

When I tried to open a previously properly closed project in Microsoft Professional 2007, i was surprised to find out that I could only open it in read only mode. The administator had it checked out. (I was THE administrator, and I am sure I did not checked this out!).

Anyway, the solution to this problem is to go ahead with the read-only version, then once the project completely loads, close it.

When you re-open the project a second time, the “Read-Only” option is gone!
