    Can't open precompiled header

    I have been working most of the day on debugging a project and finally got it to work earlier, so went and had a break. Then I came back tonight to clean up my code a bit, #define some magic numbers and stuff and now my program won't compile. It gives this error:

    c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\myprojects\project cain\project cain\control centre.cpp(6) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open precompiled header file: 'Debug/Project CAIN.pch': Permission denied

    Anyone know what is going on?

    Ok I fixed it fine. For future reference, if anyone has this problem, go to project->settings (this is MSVC++), click C/C++ tab and change the list box to precompiled headers. Then there will be an option for you to 'not use precompiled headers'. I clicked this option and everything is fine now. It was previously on 'Automatic use of precompiled headers', and as I said before it wouldn't work.....lot of good that is!!
