"Unable to open File: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"

When I first downloaded Tixati I did not have any problems.  Now this comes up all of the time.  I am using a YPN.

Any help appreciated.

had this problem myself, figured there'd be smth wrong with the file. go to the file, right-click it, select properties and see in the lower side of the window if the file is blocked because it came from another  pc. unblock it and yyou're good to go.

Next time you open Tixati from the start menu right click and choose open as admin. If that solves the problem then it is a windows problem and your install. You need to install Tixati from an account that has admin  privileges and allow admin privs to Tixati.

This same thing has been happening to me recently.

when you say check the lower part of the screen where is it that you mean? bottom left or bottom right?

No need to run Tixati as an Admin.

Just fix the permission of the folder where you are downloading files too. Or Change Files.

I'm having this problem too. The download goes on as normal, then stops and displays this message.

Found this to be my anti virus, made the file an exception, all working

Had same problem. Removed avast and download went fine.

I think some Av is the problem often. Norton's is notorious for quarantining files it hasn't approved even if they are innocent until proven guilty. Norton's does not go by that presumes guilt until proven innocent.

I configured tixati to automatically convert some video files on completion. When it failed, I saw norton's had stopped ffmpeg and quarantined it, preventing file conversion.

When this happened to me I clicked Stop, then Start and downloading resumed.

In Windows 10 if you tried to Mount the file using Windows' native mounting capabilities (right click > mount on the .iso file) AND the file was not fully downloaded, you will get this error. For some reason even after I restarted my computer, that partially downloaded file was still mounted. Had to go into windows explorer, which pops open an extra active window showing you the mounted file.

Good to know, thanks for the tip. I usually don't use native methods, because I like my Daemon Tools.

For me, the reason was that the 'Archive' bit was set in the file permissions.  Un-checking it allows tixati to read the file.
