I have a windows server 2008 R2 running a couple of sites for me, while developing i usually post updates to this server. Now, i tried posting an update but it failed said it has a file in use and the error msg is as follows:
"The action can't be completed because the file is open in IIS Worker Process" "Close the file and try again."
I have tried stopping the site but this does not help. The site is running in the same application pool as the site that should stay online so a recycle might be breaking the running site (If this is wrong, please correct me).
Question is: Is there a way to "Release" the lock that is put on the file without stopping other currently running sites?
