Hi community!

a quickie this time regarding backburner manager control.

basically, i am writing a custom script that "streamlines" the network render submission.
got most of the functions to work, however, somehow i am locked out of backburner manager by my self ( if that makes sense).

basically the que monitor (monitor.exe) shows that r35-tethys, which is me has the control.
i have tried

m.lock false

which to my understanding should unlock the que from other users requesting. so my understanding was.

m.GetControl()

to be able to get the control..

however, it still seems "locked" out.

anybody else had this problem? only fix so far, is to restart the manager which is really crude and destructive fix.

would appreciate any help : )

thank you in advance!

sorry, think i managed to fix the problem, but still have a question ><

i will put the solution here incase someone else runs into similar problem.
this is my assumption, please correct me or i am wrong : )

m.getcontrol()

seems to give the current instance of 3dsmax.exe the que control (its similar to having two monitor open, and the second one will be locked out). thus when i had one monitor running trying to access the que, monitor was not able to as que was being hogged by the 3dsmax.exe.

however though, my understanding was that if i..

m.lock false

should make 3dsmax.exe release its que control? if others asked for it?
