    I get that sometimes, I suggest you go into the debug folder for your project and delete the .exe.
    Should compile then and create a new .exe

    You still have the program (or at least a thread) still running....

    Press Ctr-Alt-Del and see if your program is still running.

    another possibility is that you've made the .exe read only, check that

    Or that the folder is not valid / right.

    Look at the project setting for working folder and exe folder.

    Project->Settings->Debug Then set the folder using the browse button.
