solved - raise ValueError('The configuration file must be locked first')

I'm trying to install the latest trial version as a bin. The problem I am having is it failing to install part way in.

This is the output I am getting, I haven't been able to find anything online about it.

** (process:17682): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'GSocketMsgFlags' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/turbine/cxoffice/bin/cxtie", line 93, in <module>
    sys.exit(cxtie.main())
  File "/home/turbine/cxoffice/lib/python/cxtie.py", line 291, in main
    return register(options.cxroot)
  File "/home/turbine/cxoffice/lib/python/cxtie.py", line 165, in register
    wconfig.save_and_unlock_file()
  File "/home/turbine/cxoffice/lib/python/cxconfig.py", line 768, in save_and_unlock_file
    raise ValueError('The configuration file must be locked first')
ValueError: The configuration file must be locked first

So it seems something to do with locking a file in cxconfig.py, although I have absolutely no idea what it's talking about let alone any way to satisfy its condition.

[Edit]
I just reinstalled everything python and restarted, seemed to install fine after that.
