XE4 - F2039 Could not create output file

This one drives me crazy:
[dcc32 Fatal Error] F2039 Could not create output file '.\Win32\Debug\Project1.exe'

The only security software installed on the Win7 Pro 64-bit box is MS Secury 
Essentials with Real-Time-Protection disabled.

Any idea?

I'm always able to delete the output file manually and in most cases 
after that the project compiles fine once.

This box has Acronis True Image installed, does that matter?

True Image is likely trying to keep a synchronized copy of the folder, interfering with Delphi. Ensure your generated files (DCU/EXE) are created within a sub folder and specifically exclude those particular sub folders from being touched by Acronis.

Sometimes the IDE does not always close its handles to output files correctly, 
especially if a compile fails.  You can either restart the IDE, or use an 
external tool like SysInternals Process Explorer to manually close the IDE's 
open handle to the file.

For me it happens very frequently. 
I can confirm that the error happens almost every time after a failed 
compile which makes serious work impossible.
Anybody else seeing this?

Also after some timeout of ~1 minute the error disappears.  
However Sysinternal's Handle.exe, run As Administrator, doesn't 
find *any* open handle to the output .exe in those cases. However it lists some 
handles fine when the output .exe is actually being debugged.

I stopped all running Acronis services and killed all other Acronis background
processes without any change. So the question remains, is this a bug
in the IDE or something external, specific to that PC?

This behaviour suggests some AV or instant backup software to me, that 
inspects the created files. I hope that you have no network (Internet) 
activity during that interval, which could indicate that your files are 
sent to some curious person/institution out there.

Perhaps AV software has its own set of file access functions, which are 
not recognizable by the observed software?

 From other AV software I know that only *deinstallation* can definitely 
stop all its activities.

Today I *uninstalled* both Microsoft Security Essentials and Acronis True 
Image however the problem persists.

Looks like a bug since XE2 already:

In XE4 the following steps reproduce the error for me, is somebody able to confirm
this ?:

{code}
program Project1;
{$APPTYPE CONSOLE}
begin
  GetLastErrorr;
  {
  1) produce an E2003 Undeclared identifier: 'GetLastErrorr'
  2) correct the spelling, hit F5 again

  The first time 2) compiles.
  Repeat both steps again, 2) won't compile with Fatal Error F2039 Could not create output file
  }
end.
{code}

The same steps do not reproduce the error for XE2 and XE3 for me.

I found the problem. 
The Application Experience service was disabled by me since years.
I started this service and the error disappeared.

How to create components in Delphi XE4 usable also in BCB XE4
I just got my upgrade from BDS2006 to RAD Studio XE4 and now I have to embark on making adjustments to the component set we have used in our applications. We have both Delphi and BCB applications and they use common components (some of them) developed all in Delphi. The most difficult one may be the Safenet Sentinel SuperPro dongle handler which I packaged into a Delphi component long ago and which we have used both from Delphi and C++ Builder (BDS2006). What needs to be done in order to use these components seamlessly in XE4 for both C++ and Delphi?

Delphi IDE and .INI files
Hi, I've recently upgraded to Delphi XE and am currently in a process of porting source code from Delphi 7 to XE. One minor irritation that I've run into is that the Delphi XE IDE opens an .ini file that's part of a project as hex. Delphi 7 didn't behave this way -- it simply opened the .ini file as a text file for editing. Is there an option somewhere that I've missed to get Delphi XE to treat .ini files the same way Delphi 7 did?
