Unique "in use by another process" problem - maybe

2 New Member
I am writing in .NET VB 2003

I have an app that uses a file system watcher looking for a file to fall into this directory. When the file falls, it is opened, processed, closed and deleted. Then it goes back to the watcher looking for the next file to drop. All of this happens as expected without a hitch. UNTIL the second file falls. the first step is:

Dim fsStream As New FileStream(sFul lHS1Path, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read )

This line causes the all to familiar "...file in use by another process" error. But only the second time thru the code. This is part of about 600 lines of code, so if there is something you'd like to see, just let me know. Hopefully this is an obvious issue to someone.

Thank You,

An added piece of the puzzle that I hope makes sense to someone.

If I place a message box immediately prior to the FileStream declaration that says nothing more than...


The code runs without problem as many times as a file is dropped.

Does that help?

I've been repeatedly annoyed by situations where a process has failed or otherwise something has gone wrong (not from any of my own apps) where I cannot move, rename, or delete a file because Windows thinks it's "being used by another process". There are no processes evident using the file(s) or folder(s), so in order to clean them up I need to log out of Windows (XP) and log back in. Out of curiosity, would it be possible to use DotNet...

Hi there I use the FileStream object to download a zip file over the internet to my local disk. The file downloads successfully, but when I attempt to unzip it, I'm told that the file is in use by another process. This occurs even if I release the object using fs.Close() and fs = Nothing. Please help (my code is given below) Best regards

Hello, I saw in some open source projects a use of "!!" in "C" code; for example: in some header file #define event_pending(v) \ (!!(v)->vcpu_info->evtchn_upcall_pending & \ !(v)->vcpu_info->evtchn_upcall_mask) whereas evtchn_upcall_pending is of type unsigned char (and also evtchn_upcall_mask is of type unsigned char).

To comp.databases.ms-access -- I just discovered, to my more than mild dismay, that some tables in my Microsoft Access 2003 database have duplicate numbers in the "AutoNumber" field. (Field Size is set to "Long Integer", and New Values is set to "Increment".) I know that an old version of the Jet database engine can cause this problem, but my version of msjet40.dll is 4.0.8618.0, which is supposedly bug-free in this respect. I am...

Hi, I'm getting an "Access is denied" error in IE when I try to focus an input box with node.focus() My understanding is that should only happen when the domains are different of the Javascript and the element that its trying to focus.
