Something is locking your DLL. It could be:

- the web server that has used you DLL (this will keep it locked until you restart the web server service (IISAdmin) ).
- another instance of VB that has your DLL referenced (close it and you're done)

Good luck

Rather than compile your DLL.
Why done you run it in debug mode through the VB enviroment untill testing has proven to have passed then simply compile then...

Remember to set the Dll running forst and I'd suggest late binding while debugging to make life easier..

Good luck Madmarlin

There is some process or application that is still holding reference to your object when you try to re-compile it with the changes and hence the error.
- Make sure all you close all the applications that might be referencing you dll.
- Also, if this object is installed in MTS on your machine. Make sure you run MtxStop, before re-compiling.

I encounter this sometimes when the only thing referencing it is VB itself.  If this is the case, close the project, close VB, restart VB, reopen the project and you should be good to go.
