Is the pdb file actually there?
If so, try deleting it, and do a full rebuild.
If not, maybe you're not allowed to write to that directory? Check if you can create an ordinary text file there.

I'm pretty sure the 2nd error (the one in the title) is caused by the first.


I rather think it's, counterintuitively, the other way around: it can't open the file (because it can't find it) and so can't update it.

I get this sometimes with VS, for no apparent reason that I can identify. It is certainly not disk space or file or directory permissions.

It seems (this is just a vague idea) to happen when I am impatiently editing source files while a previous build is still outputting error messages, but I don't have any hard evidence for that.

I wonder if Windows rather than VS is getting confused about a file lock on the .pdb maybe?

I just do "Rebuild Solution" and it fixes it. I don't have to delete any files or anything. Just a bit of a pain to do a full rebuild - if I was working on large projects, it would probably have annoyed me enough to investigate it properly by now.

well I figured it out. Thanks for all the help.


How did you figure it out? Others might have the same issue and might want to solve it too, without having to ask :).
