Explorer.exe locking the file ( file in use ) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good MOrning,

    I am facing a problem to delete a file.

    The file stay in use for explorer.exe even after finish the action.

    The application works like this:

    1.exe opens file 2.exe and close file file 1.exe

    this is necessary for our needs.

    When I close the file 2.exe it verify if the file 1.exe is the most recenty version with the server, if not , it is replaceded for a new one file 1.exe.

    The new file is not been copied because the file 1.exe ( old ) keep in use for the explorer.exe, if I end the explorer.exe proccess, the copy of the new file occurr normally.

    Someone knows how to clean the files in use for the explorer.exe ?

    the proccess have to be automatic, I already tried some options over the internet without success.

    Sorry for my bad english.

    Thanks in advance
