Stupid question (Media Portal dlls) (1 Viewer)

I built the last Media portal sources, and I lack 4 DirectX dlls (Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.dll..) in the release folder. I have these dlls in the cvs root. This should be automatic, right ?

In the Build Output, I have 4 times :

The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

I guess that's my 4dlls. Also I have 172 warnings of the type :

C:\Documents and Settings\kolmo\Desktop\DEVELOPER\mediaportal\xbmc\d3dutil.cs(27,43): warning CS1595: 'Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.Format' is defined in multiple places; using definition from 'c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Managed DirectX\v9.02.2904\Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.dll'

Something is wrong with my installation, I guess...

I had sort of the same problem once. As I remember the solution is to reboot. (The good old MS reset).

I tried several times to analyse the problem, and as I remember some of the .dll files was locked by either a running MP (debug leftover or runtime)

Rebooting is the solution (and not starting MP before VS just to be on the safe side)

Happy Coding, Ojo
