Visual Studio 2008 again.

Why does VS2008 display this error despite a successful compilation of code..

Error 1 fatal error LNK1105: cannot close file 'd:vs2008win32projectDebugwin32project.exe' win32project win32project


How does one close the EXE file to avoid this error being generated?

    :
    Clean out your debug directory, reboot the machine, and try again.

    It could be either a version of the program still running in the background, or something funny with an existing file in the directory.
    It is unlikely to be a common internal error that means you can never write an executable, or Microsoft would have caught it early on.

    :I wish that were a version of the program still running in the background but it doesn't seem to be so. This happens irrespective of whether I have written a console application or a Win32 one. I am confident that this is no internal error but rather something happening at my end. I cannot even run the program using Ctrl + F5 without this error being generated. To still manage to run an EXE I have to first Rebuild the project and then go in for Ctrl+F5. Rather annoying hence this post. Hope somebody can clear this mess for me.

    [color=Blue]Usually Google for an error code. If you do it using "LNK1105" - you get this:

    Seems unconnected... how does inability to close a file affected by a disk full condition?!! but check it anyway.[/color]
