Cannot compile program written by another user on my PC

P: n/a
I'm wondering why I cannot compile a co-workers project from my PC?
Here's the situation:
We both have WinXP.
We both have VS .NET 2003 installed.
I can open her project and make changes to the code...she can open my
project and make changes to my project...but if either of us try to compile
and run the app (through .NET) we get the "Could not copy temporary files to
the output directory." errors.
Our projects are stored on a shared unix server...hers is at
\\xserv1\customer\a\ and mine is located at \\xserv1\customer\b\
Here's a kicker...if she logs into my machine she can 'build' the project
but she cannot run it.
I've been trying to figure out how we can work on each other's projects and
run them from our PCs.
I'm searching the web for more info...can anyone provide any additional
info?

TIA

a tip...
when we have some problems like that is because of the file attributes (read
only) from VCS.

Bruce,

Do you have this both in Debug and Release mode?

Maybe this is the problem...I'm not sure what you mean by Debug and Release
mode? I load the other programmers solution file in VS.NET just as I do
mine. I've never actually changed to "release" mode...I've always worked in
debug. Should I be doing something in "release" mode?

Your insight is much appreciated!

It turns out to be a UNIX rights problem. We are saving our dev projects on
a UNIX server but as soon as we copied them to a Windows server both users
could edit, save, compile and run the applications without any problems.
Glad to find out it wasn't anything to do with .NET.

In "release" mode, all the extra code that is automatically inserted into
the final code to assist with debugging is removed... This should if nothing
else make your final solution slightly smaller and run faster!
