The process cannot access the file D:\abc.xml because it is being used by another process.

Hi
I am loading a input xml into XML Document (InputXML), processing the xml document and then saves the result in a temporary xml file. When I copy temporary xml file to input xml, it gives me error. I am using File.Copy().

That sounds like you haven't closed the file D:\abc.xml after loading it for processing, so the system won't allow you to replace it.

Hi

Thanks for the response. I added Thread.Sleep() before copying the files and its working now.
