Could not delete the previously built file '<filename>'

The specified output file must be deleted before it can be rebuilt; it cannot be deleted because access to the file is denied. The most likely cause is that the file is marked as read-only.

To correct this error

  • In Windows Explorer, navigate to the specified file and change its read-only attribute.
