    Whenever I start up Visual Studio (2010) I get a dialog box with the following error message 3 times:

    System.IO.FileLoadException: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070020)
    at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ThrowExceptionForHRInternal(Int32 errorCode, IntPtr errorInfo)

    Any idea what the problem is and how to fix it?

    Hello Carl,

    Thank you sending the error.

    We have received several reports with similar errors and our guess that the issue is caused by a concurrent code. We are already working on this and I hope that we will manage to fix it for our next release.

    As a temporary workaround, you can disable all Telerik extensions except the Web UI one.

    Please, do not hesitate to write us back if need any further assistance.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
