If you are running a 32-bit version of Windows, you may still have the initial Patch file of 17.3.0 which wasn't compatible with 32-bit versions of Windows.  If so, try downloading and installing the Patch from the link provided above.

If that doesn't solve your problem:

Sometimes Data Locks are caused by an abnormal termination of SA-SAMS on the computer (e.g. shutting down without quitting SA-SAMS, terminating SA-SAMS through the Task Manager without signing out, or an interrupted network session).

Have you tried checking and clearing the Data Locks for your user on 16.14 View/Maintain Sessions & Data Locks?
