    I have a Telerik Report in a WinForm that randomly fails to release the PDF it has created for viewing. The first time the report will view fine. Changing variables and clicking submit more often results in a 'The process cannot access the file 'C:\Temp...\..PDF' because it is being used by another process. Exiting the report form itself has no effect and the files remain locked until the main program is shut down.

    Hi Floyd,

    The exception may be caused by an outer process trying to access the PDF file before it is ready.

    Since the issue is not reproducible at our side, please send a runnable sample project reproducing the exception or exact steps how to reproduce it. Feel free to open a support ticket and provide us with the requested information in it. We will update the forum thread with our findings for anyone concerned in the end of the discussion.


    Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q2 2013? You can get them from your account.
