error MIDL2212 : error while writing to file .\msaddndr_i.c midl

I'm getting this error after having the plugin in my project for a period of time. The only way I have been able to get ride of the error is by deleting the add-in project and creating a new one. This only works for a very short time before the error pops up again. Has anyone encountered this issue?

Hi Wyatt.

Could you please send me the shim project? I will check it.

Are you perchance using source control (ie. Sourcesafe?). Visual Studio has this irritating habit of deciding to check in generated files like this. The result is it's read-only on your machine and next time you go to build, the compiler chokes.

That was exactly it. I noticed in the message that it couldnt write to the msaddndr_i.c file. Read only was in fact checked.

Thanks for the help.
