This issue occurs if one or more of the following conditions are true:

To resolve this issue, determine whether the Dynamics.cnk and Dynamics.dic files are read-only. To do it, follow these steps:
Open Windows Explorer.
Locate the Microsoft Dynamics GP folder. By default, this folder is in the following location:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\GP
Right-click the Dynamics.cnk file, and then select Properties.

If this procedure doesn't resolve the issue, make sure that all users have exited Microsoft Dynamics GP.
