Description Eric Maupin 2012-05-22 20:06:42 UTC
In Visual Studio:

1. Open a designer file.
2. Attempt to delete designer file.

Error deleting file '<file>'. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

3. Close tab
4. Attempt to delete file.

Same result. This also occurs for trying to rename the file.

Today with the latest builds:

VS 2012/2010
MFA 4.6.01073
Mono 2.10.12

This issue does not exist, as now the exception does not appear when edit the layout axml file after opening it in the code editor.

Hence, closing this issue.
