mysterious sharingViolation using a CStdioFile

My app writes several ascii files (I use CStdioFile) and
generally things work fine.  But I have intermittent
mysterious problems where things fail, and the CFileException that comes back has "sharingViolation" in
its "m_cause" member.

Looking at some doc for this it says:

"SHARE.EXE was not loaded, or a shared region was locked"

Now my file is a simple file on the local disk, not in
a shared folder or having anything to do with sharing as
far as I can tell.  I'm on XP (haven't seen it on other
computers, but who knows...)

Do you get a sharingViolation is the file is still open
from a previous action?  But I think I always close the
file, so I don't get what the problem can be.

Any ideas?

Are U sure U r closing the file after operation?
Be sure that.Problem because of someone opens that file.

Or try |CFile::shareDenyNone flag

Are you using Norton AV (or any other online scanner)?

I've got Norton AV there, I believe...
could that be related?

Actually, on that same computer I also have occaisional
glitches where it says it can't open a file (in genreal
problems with file access) -- this occurs even from apps
like the visusal studio editor -- then, a second later
all if fine.

Hmmm....

Yup, this is caused by NAV (NAV recognizes that a file gets modified and tries to grasp & check the file before you do). Disable NAV's online scanning and the problems will be gone (there was already a similar thread here).
