KillHandle ---------- Synopsis KillHandle <file-path> [<process-name>] Description Visual Studio 2010 sometimes keeps file handles to compilation targets (especially static libraries) open which prevents further build attempts of the affected project. KillHandle, when used as a pre-build step, works around that bug by killing the (presumably leaked) file handles from the first devenv.exe process it finds. Related Connect-Entry: <http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/551819/vs2010-locks-static-library-after-debug-session> Options <file-path> The file path of handles to kill (e.g. "C:\FooLib\Debug\FooLib.lib"). KillHandle only runs when this specifies the path to an actual file system object (that can be opened by CreateFile). <process-name> The name of the process to inspect. Defaults to "devenv.exe". Usage Copy KillHandle.exe and KillHandle.props to the location of your choice and add the property sheet to the affected projects or manually add it as Pre-Build Event.
