We have this issue where our build fails with the error "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.". It happens on a lot of different files.

Here is a screenshot of the issue: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kznt3aofkdrdwll/Screenshot%202015-03-24%2017.06.45.png?dl=0

We get this message quite often. About 90% of the time, when our build fails it is because of this. I assume that this is a known issue with AppVeyour. Is that correct? Is there anything we might be able to do about it?

    Hi Mads,

    Do you have ".nuget" folder in your solution? If so, the try updating nuget.exe there to the latest version. It was a known issue in nuget.exe that was fixed in recent versions.
