Error compiling fairly simple database

I get an error  "Could not use (Path\filename); file already in use".  I've compiled this database (Contracts.aacdb) successfully in the past.  Don't think anything has changed as far as network/version goes (Access 2007-2013).  However, I see that  the Debug/Compile option is greyed out.  See screendumps of both the error and the VB option.   No one else is using the database.

try opening the file Contracts.laccdb and see if more than one user have the db open.
the .laccdb is located in the same folder where  Contracts.accdb is.

Delete the .laccdb file and reboot the PC.   Do a compact and repair then try a compile
