I am using Delphi 7 professional version. Recently, I get the error shown below: I am running this under windows XP.
[fatal error] could not create output file C:\......Project1.exe.
When i run any project for the first time, there is no error but as soon as i make a change in the code (even a superficial change like deleting a semi colon and retyping it ). When i run the project again I get this error.
I have closed Delphi and tried deleting the Project1.exe - I get a message saying it cannot be deleted as it is being used by another program. I have to restart the computer before I can run the project again. I have looked at the processes in windows task manager before and after the error - there is no change in the processes or the number of processes. This problem has started recently(1 week).
