Information about the .lock (lock) file type

This is one of two possibilities that we have on file for the .lock file extension, follow this link to view both possibilities.

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .lock (lock) file type.

.lock
Microsoft Visual Studio lock file.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 uses the file vspdmc.lock. The purpose of this file is unclear, although it is thought to be used as a PkgDef cache lock file.

The file vspdmc.lock is located at: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .lock files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .lock. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
