happens to me too sometimes...usually once a month or so without any special reason...when it happens i just copy and paste the file contents to a textfile, restart VStudio and paste it again. it''s annoying though

Typically this happens when VC locks a file for some reason. You''ll often see this on .exe files if your program doesn''t shut down right. As for why it locks random .cpp files that''s up in the air, but it seems like a new bug that''s been introduced into .net.
