Unable to write to [path].pbd: System Error &H80004005&

BronwenWeeGo I’m helping John with a few things today. I tried to compile one of the project’s he’s been working on and was presented with a cryptic error message:

Error in debug compilation for WebApp project “Unable to write to output file ‘[project path]\obj\Debug\[website].pbd’ : System Error &H80004005&”

Turns out there was a file in the project that didn’t exist (little exclamation mark on the file in solution explorer). Easy fix – remove the file and all is happy.

So slappies for John for checking in a non-compiling project but it would be nice to have a better error message though!
