overwolf.io.readFileContents fails when the file is being used by another process

In my case, I want to send the game log files for debug when an exception occurs, and the log file is used by the game itself.

Since it’s only a read operation, isn’t there a way to access the file’s contents even when the file itself is locked by the game?

@sebastientromp before we diving here to find the issue, have you tried to use the new overwolf.extensions.io. readTextFile()? it might solve it (not sure though, please update me).

That worked, thanks! (I used overwolf.io.readTextFile instead of overwolf.extensions.io.readTextFile because the file is a game log file)
