DLL's locked when compiling or executing in debug
Posted on 2003-03-25
We are developing a large application in C# with multiple projects. Recently one dev. PC has a problem compiling and claims certain project DLL's can't be overwritten as "they are in use by another process". There is no application executing and often after much messing around (deleting DLL's, compiling projects in order of dependancy etc) the exe. project can be compiled and run. The troublesome Dll's can't be manually deleted unless VS is closed and even if it is closed and they are deleted then they are locked next time you try and compile. It is very sporadic with sometimes only one Dll being a problem, sometimes more.
I've checked dependancies and all seems fine. After deleting local source files and then retrieving from SourceSafe it worked fine for a while but now is almost impossible to run again.
DynaZip Max 5
COM interop with word and excel.
Although none of the other Workstations seem to have this problem.
Anyone had similar probs. and found a solution?
