Error, System.IO.IOException:

Hi my XIBO installation keeps putting up balloon messages saying the error below, the xibo player is working fine but its kinda annoying since it brings up the windows taskbar all the time.

System.IO.IOException: The process cannot access the file ‘C:\xibo\status.json’ because it is being used by anothoer process.
at System.IO_ErrorWinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)
at System.IO.FileStream.Init(String path, Filemode)

Could you open Windows task manager and ensure that you have only one Xibo client process running?

Perhaps some anti-virus etc software is trying to access this file?

Hi guys,
i am also getting this same error on Windows 7 computers.
There is running only one client and it is 1.8.1
Any ideas how to tackle this?

Any answers on this will be extremely appreciated.

Having same issue on clients. Is there any solution?
