I'm getting this exception thrown when I run one of my threads.

EXCEPTION GETEPP: The process cannot access the file "C:\EVENTSETTINGS\EVSET2BC7601F642B1175BD6C0A956232F5CF.xml" because it is being used by another process.

How would i implement a stream to write the xml, if thats the solution.

Here is the code where the problem occurs,




            Dim TEMPPATH As String = "C:\EVENTSETTINGS\EVSET" & EVI & ".xml"

            Dim CompleteTable As New DataSet
            Dim TBLCOPY As New DataTable

            TBLCOPY = TBL.Copy
            CompleteTable.Tables.Clear()
            CompleteTable.Tables.Add(TBLCOPY)

         

            Try
                CompleteTable.WriteXml(TEMPPATH)
                CompleteTable.Tables.Clear()
                CompleteTable.Dispose()

            Catch ex As Exception
                Do While Not ex.Message.ToString = ""
                    Debug.Write("EXCEPTION GETEPP: " & ex.Message.ToString & vbNewLine)
                    Thread.Sleep(1)
                Loop
            End Try


            Debug.Write(vbNewLine & "WRITING FILE: " & TEMPPATH & " TABLE COUNT: " & CompleteTable.Tables.Count & vbNewLine)

            strTag = ""



            MainForm.FieldParseControls(TEMPPATH, MainEventFormURL)



500 Points because this is urgent! :D

Are there other threads/processes accessing this file?

This is just telling you that something else has it opened exclusively.

perhaps you are missing a clsoe or dispose somewhere else?

I fixed it by removing a thread that was writing to it. I have more code that has the same issue though. any suggestions?




        Dim DSet As New DataSet
        Dim Dtbl As New DataTable
        Dim flXML As String



        flXML = (TabControl1.SelectedTab.Tag)


        DSet.ReadXml(flXML)


        Do While DSet.Tables.Count = 0
            Application.DoEvents()
        Loop



        Dim cName As ComboBox = CType(sender, System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox)
        cName.Name = CType(sender, System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox).Name

        Dim DRow As DataRow
        Dim EventFileName As String

        For Each DRow In DSet.Tables(0).Rows
            If IsDBNull(DRow.Item("VALUE")) Then
                DRow.Item("VALUE") = "NULL"
            End If
        Next

        For Each DRow In DSet.Tables(0).Rows

            If DRow.Item("VALUE") = cName.Name Then
                DRow.Item(8) = cName.Text
                TMEventInfoParseGrid.DataSource = DSet
            End If
        Next
