Subject RE: Error in Delete Task

No, I have checked this extensively... It seems to be just with the
swingall.jar file and regardless of what directory it is in... the jar file
is coming out of SourceSafe, but is getting write permission set... no other
file coming out of sourcesafe has any issue being deleted...

I don't know the specifics of your situation,
but if a file is in use by the OS, then
you get a SHARING VIOLATION, which causes
ant to fail at that point. I've accidentally
left NT Explorer sitting on a subdir of a
dir 'ant' was trying to delete, and it couldn't.
Or, I had "cd'd" into a subdir of a dir
ant was to delete, and it couldn't

So, make usre this jar file is not in use by
a running application....

My project is due today so I don't want to waste unnecessary cycles
upgrading to 1.3 if I can avoid it.
