windows 7 "permission denied" problem
« on: July 26, 2011, 09:43:55 pm »
when i compile any program it executes 2 or 3 times fine but after that C::B gives me error when i compile it again it gives me error....

ld.exe||cannot open output file C:\Users\username\Documents\Codeblocks\del it .exe Permission denied

and when i restart C::B then it works fine but again after compiling program 1 or 2 time again it says "permission denied".

i am facing this problem from past few days.

This sounds to me like either a non-stopping application (i.e. it remains in memory after closing) or an issue with an AntiVirus (/defense) software that does not free it's handle to the executable.

You can try:
- inspect the running processes in your task manager to see if the app closed properly
- disable your AV / defense software temporarily, see if the problem is gone
- use a tool like process explorer (from sysinternals), search for the handle of your application and see which (other) process gained a handle to it

Note that this is 99.9% not an issue with Code::Blocks, but with the system.

i tried first two methods i turned my antivirus off and also checked process list but i found nothing.

but i noticed that after executing the program and after when i get permission denied error when i wait 1 or 2 minutes i can execute it again without any error.

i will try process explorer. may be i am missing something :? .

it could also be a loop running in your program. just because you pushed that x to close it doesn't mean your app kills it's self mid process.

Yes, but then it should appear in the task manager which isn't the case:

I've had exactly the same problem. It happened when I switched firewall implementations and I only solved it by expunging all traces of both firewalls and then reinstalling one from scratch. So I would look again at it being a problem with your AV/firewall software. In any case, I doubt it is a CB problem - I bet you will get the same thing happening when you compile from the command line.

Have you tried compiling from the command line? Do you get the same errors? If so, it isn't a CB problem and you should look elsewhere for a solution.

All I can tell is that this is certainly not a C::B issue. Why that happens extremely depends on your system and used software. It is uncertain that you can get an any more help from the Code::Blocks community therefore.

Sorry.

You can try to rename the exe to delit.exe, not del it.exe.

ok problem is solved when i reinstalled the codeblocks it's now working fine.

i thing that access denied problem was because i mixed the nightly build with the original codeblocks program files (i am stupid  :roll:).

anyway case is closed.
