    Djgpp Compiler:Wont let me delete it.

    I downloaded the install file for the Djgpp C++ Compiler, but when I realised I had done it to the wrong place, I tried moving it. It said access was denied.

    Is this because it is a dos based program?

    How do I delete it?

    Probably because you've still got a console / file / editor window still open in a directory where the program is installed.

    Certainly a reboot and then delete it should work
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
