Thanks guys,

But nothing works.

Everything else on my system runs just fine and quick, no problems what so ever.

IWB has to delete (or send a message to the system to delete) the existing .exe file and there lies the problem.

I wrote a simple console program with DELETEFILE in to delete the other .exe, it returns 1 for success - but still the .exe remains until the system bins it.

Noticed is Resmon it states the .exe is terminated but memory usage slowly counts down to zero - only then can I build another copy.

Strange.

And another thing, as I said I tried it on another machine and it does the same?

Both are Win 7 32 bit.

Andy.

Just a few additional comments:

- Close IWB and run the program as an Administrator.
- Set the output-directory for your executable(s) to a folder located inside My Documents. This folder should have write permission.
- Add IWB to your antivirus Whitelist.

If all the suggestions fail, you can install IWB to a USB memory stick and run it from there. I did, and got rid of the annoying update trouble.

yeah, it's like you've got your computer making an automatic backup or sync or something like that ; that is slow.

Andy,

Try Windows Update, and make sure your drivers are up to date. Seems to be a problem after Windows 10 Creator update. Even if you haven't updated, it's worth a try

Thanks everyone, but no cigar.

Checked all settings.
Installed IWB 3.03 on different machine to test - same problem.
Turned of disk indexing.

Tried everything I can think of - it looks like a windows file locking problem.

I tried this with two simple programs (A and B.exe):

Program A - comp[ile / run / exit - okay
Program A - comp[ile / run / linking problem.

Program B - comp[ile / run / exit - okay
Program B - comp[ile / run / linking problem.

Then went to the folder the exe's were in.
Could not manually delete them - BUT - they both get removed at the same time after something like 30 - 40 seconds?

So it's like I'm waiting for windows explorer to update itself?

It's the only way to describe it.

Andy.

Andy

In the File menu under compile options check to make sure everything looks right there.

Then click your Executable Options button and then select the Advanced button and make sure there is no garbage in the Assembler Options window.

I would think that with it still in Task Man, that the system still has not closed all the stuff in the program.  Try doing the Taskkill and see if that helps.

Thanks guys,

Bill, sorry that doesn't help.

I made an exe from the OPENWINDOW example in the help file - called it 1234.exe

It just does the same as all the others.

Looked into processes etc, just lists it as "Terminated", and until it disappears from the list (task man) it won't work.

I have run into this a few times and you do have to find it in 'Task Manager', however, it was not running under 'Apps', it was running under 'Background Processes'.  It happened often enough I created a batch file to remove it.

Sample:
Code Select
Taskkill /T /F /IM order_entry.exe
Hope that helps,
Bill
