Can’t edit file that is locked on Server 2008 with Notepad++

When trying to edit a file on Windows Server 2008 with Notepad++, you might get this error:

“Please check whether if this file is opened in another program”

Run Notepad++ as an administrator by right-clicking on the shortcut, and choose, Run As Administrator.

Strange.
