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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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).
