MSB3061: Unable to delete file "bin\Debug\<<DLLName>>". Access to the path '<<ReferencePNE>>' is denied

Hi,

I'm having problems compiling my project in Visual Studio 2010.
After I compile the first time (after startup), I can't compile a second time because all the DLLs reference appears to be locked. I am not using any source control.
My project is very simple project.

Below is my build output.

A couple of points that might result in this error.
There are two copies of visual studio running with the same project open in each.
The exe is actually running outside of visual studio when you attempt the second build - so using the dll's which prevents them being deleted.
