    Are you sure you stopped debugging? If your program is still running in the background, it' executable file cannot be overwritten.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Like nvoigt said, check your running applications. Most likely your exe is not ending. I've had this problem before. Mine had to do with multiple threads and at least one of them taking a while to end. Poor code on my part. Fixed the code, fixed the problem.

    I have had this happen before, sometimes when I have still had the program open from previous debugging, as others have said. I have also had this happen randomly and after recompiling it again it has worked. Also I have read somewhere that this could be cause if your AntiVirus\Malware programs are interfering, so if you still haven't solved this try disabling your security applications and rebuilding.
