[Closed] Migrating project from 4.15 to 4.16
Hi there guys and gals,
I recently migrated my project to 4.16. Since then VS 2017 throws an error when hot reloading:
This occurs for all the attempts after the first compilation. Seems to be an issue with replacing the Win64-DebugGame.lib file to me. However this error doesn't seem to influence the hot reload capabilities of the editor. The hot realod still seems to succeed.
I start the launcher "as administrator", then I chose my project and start the editor. In the editor I start VS. So I'd assume everything is started with administrator privileges. To test if the windows UAC is causing the issue I disabled UAC completely but nothing changed.
Some time ago I read that having your project on another physical drive might cause issues. So I copied my project to my c drive, genereated the project files and gave that a try. Still, the problem is the same.
I'm out of ideas. Can anyone help?

I found my issue, I guess. I was messing around with the project settings a while ago since I had another issue which I can't remember right now. I was going through my solution properties (right click your solution -> properties) and compared them to a freshly generated project. Obviously I set the Startup Project Setting to "Multiple Startup Projects". After setting this to "Single Startup" everything worked fine again. Either this was the solution or the recent update to 4.16.2. Anyways problem does not occur anymore.

such a message usually occurs when you have no write rights for a file most probably you have a source control and you are not connected to it, otherwise somebody else might have checked that file for himself therefore it doesn't allow you to edit it till he submit changes or revert.
if you don't have a source control, check if you can manually edit this file (notepad++ or anything) does it save?
