Deleting a file using Windows Service in .NET
Posted on 2008-10-31
I have a windows service created for parsing XML files contained in certain folders. The folders are organised into categories
These folders will contain XML files. My parser program will loops though all the files in these folders, parses the XML data and inserts into the database. My aim is to delete these files once the parsing is completed. When i try to execute the file deleting code inside the windows service an error message "cannot delete the file..it is being used by another process" is shown. Is there any way i can delete these files from the windows service.
