Real file-locking only with NTFS-authorization.

I do programming development work, and sometimes need to simulate a situation when a file is locked. There's no way to easily do this, but I found a program/tool to do this:

Which does the job well. (source code included on website).

But would be handy if FreeCommander we can right-click on a file to lock... and it would highlight background row red or something....

There is no need to integrate such functions in FC.
Just make a favorite entry for your tool in FC and you can lock a file with the click of a button.
