In this post we will discuss how to resolve the below issue which comes while building an azure webjob (which was created using console application) using visual studio 2015. The error comes when I try to build a webjob which we have created using console application in visual studio 2015. The full error looks like below:
Could not copy “obj\Debug\SiteCreation.exe” to “bin\Debug\SiteCreation.exe”. Exceeded retry count of 10. Failed.
Unable to copy file “obj\Debug\SiteCreation.exe” to “bin\Debug\SiteCreation.exe”. The process cannot access the file “bin\Debug\SiteCreation.exe” because it is being used by another process.

I deleted the Debug folder and then try rebuilding the application, it started working fine. Hope this might be helpful.
