It would seem like you could do a similar thing to the locking thing....
As such (I don't know where the code is, but here is a potential

HANDLE fileHandle;
long erry;
long inc = 0;

	if( inc )
		//output something to the user ...     "Waiting for
exclusive rights to <filename>"
		Sleep( 1000 );
	fileHandle = CreateFile( <name of rcs file>, GENERIC_WRITE, 0,
	if( fileHandle == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE )
		erry = GetLastError();
while( inc <= 10 && fileHandle == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE && erry ==
ERROR_SHARING_VIOLATION /* or whatever error code you are getting...   i
think this is correct*/ );

if( fileHandle == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE )
	//die nicely, mumble something about A/V maybe???

//proceed with what you are doing

Or have you tried this type of thing already?

In the past things like that haven't worked - I've tried things like
that to
stop AV problems on the server side...  however if you can get a
reliable fix
it stands a chance of going in.
