For some reason lately i have been getting this error:
---------------------------
Microsoft Visual Studio
---------------------------
Unable to start program 'f:\Programming\C_C++_DirectX\dGUI\projects\dGUI Test Application\Debug\dGUI Test Application.exe'.

Access is denied.

---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

when i try to step through an application. I don't get to step through any of it, i get this straight away. I don't have it already running, so it can't be that. Any ideas?

Very odd - have you reinstalled Windows recently?

Have you tried giving file/folder permissions to 'Everybody' under F:\Programming\C_C++_DirectX\dGUI\projects\?

I don't get this all the time though so i doubt it is some setting somewhere. I have just realised that i am running a D3D game in a window at the same time, since the program i am having problems with links the D3D libs, could this be a problem?

Yeah it was because i was running another D3D window, though i don't see why this should cause a problem.
