Can you post a screenshot of this error? It is probably a hidden file.

i need to understand how to change a html file in the \files folder or the\object\scr folder.
If I restore from my backup...the compile goes well.
If I update my html file in the \src folder...it then will not compile.

so what is the way to do this?

Does it work after you click on Tools - Clean project?

Which step is failing (it is not clear from the screenshot)?

ok
i click on tools>build server>build release app.

then I get:The file 'D:\Documents and Settings\John\Desktop\B4I-forum\SourceCode\AstroMatch_Store\Objects\src\Thumbs.db' already exists.

1.) I have restored from backup
(it compiles no error message)

2.) I change the "general_info.html" file in \files or \objects\scr

I get the error above.

so: my question what is the best way to update or change an existing file under files?

it has me stopped!

I had the same problem recently . I solved this by deleting the file Thumbs.db that was in files folder. Windows probably created it alone. Perhaps B4i can do this automatically.
