problem compiling with mingw
« on: November 27, 2008, 05:12:11 pm »
I get these errors when I change something in my code
Code
Linking console executable: data\Debug\bin\Main_game.exe
C:\Program Files\CodeBlocks\MinGW\bin\ld.exe: cannot open output file data\Debug\bin\Main_game.exe: Permission denied
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Process terminated with status 1 (0 minutes, 0 seconds)
0 errors, 0 warnings
what do these mean?.

Here's a quick update, so far it only does this in debug mode.

If it has worked before it most likely means that an instance of your exe is still running.
Open the taskmanager and kill it.

That's why I wrote

There could of course be other reasons, like no write permission, but that should not happen accidently.

You can try to delete the exe-file manually, if windows says another process is using it, it's most likely that the process is still running.

Alright you were right, that's what it was. I need to change up my cleanup when the exit button is selected.
