I have testdriven.net, ghostdoc and resharper installed as VS2003 addins. There were installed in that order. Recently I've observed some wierdness and would like your comments as to what it could be.
Since yesterday I've been getting the following error message. I can't Identify any other 'user' of the file.
Could not write to output file 'C:\Documents and Settings\pprice\My Documents\Visual Studio Projects\Api\library\obj\Debug\library.dll' -- 'The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. '
Also, since yesterday - and I don't recall playing with any setting that might have turned this on - I have little green circles with some figure inside, and an up arrow right next to it (I think) w/ tooltalk that says 'Implements method from interface IInterfaceName.XYZ' Probably this is a feature, because it's true. I don't see any way to turn the little green circles off - and I find them distracting.
Of further concern - the last time I deleted the impacted dll, so that it could be rebuilt, VS2003 suddenly couldn't 'see' and unrelated source code file. It was there in the filesystem - a 'search files and folders' turned it up, just where it was expected to be - but VS2003 continued to disagree that there was a file of that name in that location.
I ended up copying it to another location, deleting it from the project, then copying it back to it's location and adding it.
So - known issues? Do a virus scan immediately? VS2003 just be's that way sometimes?
