I'm getting the following error message after clicking "Export...":

Unable to generate html report. The process cannot access the file "C:\DOCUME~1\dbuckle\LOCALS~1\Temp\RedGate\87ca23aa-3782-4df8-8f7d-2fdd11d2dfae". because it is being used by another process.

I get the same error for any type of export.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Much appreciated,

    Hello David,

    Part of the process of generating a report is to make an XML representation of the report data in the %TMP% folder first. It sounds like another process has got an exclusive lock on the temporary file.

    Possibly disabling your virus checker temporarily may help. If that fails, try using the Windows Disk Cleanup Utility to delete temporary files.
