Can't build my app, VS says files are in use by another process

P: n/a
I've rebooted and I'm still getting the errors:
Error 13 Could not write to output file
'C:\PMDRepository\Tools\PMDManfStudio\Services\obj \Debug\Services.dll' --
'The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another
process. ' Services

Anyone here experienced this before? Solutions? Ideas?

Thanks,
Steve

Hi,

I have seen some messages like that before, what I do is removing the files
manually and usually the error goes away.

This error can occur if you have more than one instance of Visual
Studio open, and the two open solutions share a project, even if
you're only building one at a time.

Hi sklett,

since your dll is named Service i suppose it's a windows service. Is the
service still running?

Does your project reference the .dll directly or do you use a project
reference? If you have the projects for the .dll's, then you should
use a project reference and not directly reference the dll.
