The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Hi,
I am getting the error
"The process cannot access the file "C:\Documents and
Settings\piyush\Desktop\200309181051.ktl" because it is being used by
another process."
when I try to open this file using fileopen in VB.Net
I am very sure that the file is not being used by any other process
as I tried to open other files without success.Also I rebooted my
machine & again tried to open the file.but its giving me same error.
Does anybody know what the problem is?
Thanks for your help

Hi Piyush,
Why don't you try another file in the same code.
Just to test?

Post the code you use for opening the file.
