Well, it seems the daily WTF is that I cannot find how to rename 'The daily WPF' to 'The daily WTF' in the title of this post! :)

Hahahaha,  I like stories like that.

They simply add to my knowledge of how fucked up the software world is... (And I generally try to avoid fucked up things).

 

Generally when file is locked try ProcessExplorer (windows) ,locate the handle and simply close it :)

True enough. This is how I discovered it was VBCSCOMPILER.exe locking the folder. Unfortunately, killing it unlocked the folder only temporarily, until I tried to recompile...

Ugh process explorer. So useful and so annoying.

It's had a memory leak in it for getting close to a decade now that nobody has fixed despite being reported dozens of times to sysinternals and ms.

Try leaving it running for a few weeks on a server which rapidly spawns short lived processes, and see what happens.

THAT is my own wtf... :(

No it's not.

Yes it is.
