    Default Error while compiling: Unable to open output file ...

    When I try to compile my application I sometimes get the following error:

    Code:
    ----Compiling MyProgram.src----
    - Compiling Program: C:\DataFlex Projects\MyProgram\AppSrc\MyProgram.src
    - LINK ERROR: UNABLE TO OPEN OUTPUT FILE C:\DataFlex Projects\MyProgram\Programs\MyProgram.exe, FILE MAY BE IN USE OR READ-ONLY

    ----Compile Finished (With Errors!)----
    ----Compiler Error Summary----
    - LINK ERROR: UNABLE TO OPEN OUTPUT FILE C:\DataFlex Projects\MyProgram\Programs\MyProgram.exe, FILE MAY BE IN USE OR READ-ONLY
    I then have to go to the programs-directory and delete the MyProgram.exe and the temp-file.
    I have enough rights to do this, the exe is not open. It does not happen every time, "only" every third or fourth time.

    [edit] Also happens with WebApps, and other 18.1 applications I try to compile.
