Hi guys!
I just installed a new windows vista on my newly bough hard drive. i tried to deploy my web application to the local IIS server but the default web site appears to be stopped which prevents any site from being accessible over the LAN and when i try to start the process it throws his error: "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.(Exception from HRESULT:0x80070020)"
Please what could be the problem?

Which version of Vista are you running?

Side Question, Windows 7 has been out for over a year now, why are you using Vista?

Please have a look at this thread.

Fortinbra, thanks but i dont believe in changing OS as it does not depict increase in knowledge.
Adatapost, thanks but i already found a solution. My system was running windows update so it was actually in use and could not be reached.
