I have created a CAB WPF application which has 5 modules. The solution builds and runs successfully for the first time. Once run if the window is closed, and after that the project is compiled again it throws an error 'cannot copy to output folder' - one or the other dll and sometimes the shell.exe itself. I understand shell is leaving a process behind that i can see in the task manager also, once i kill that the project builds and executes again. How do I kill this shell process/how do I resolve this.

This is fixed. We had a window object unattended, disposing it solved the issue.
