    Hi shailendra,

    Please check whether it is the permission issue. You could run the VS as Administrator, then try again.

    On the other hand, please try to delete the file in file system, then delete the file in the VS.

    Thanks

    Best Regards

    Hi shailendra,

    Thanks for your post!

    According to your description, I don’t understand clearly that you said.

    Do you mean you can’t modify the project/file name in the VS?

    If so, I would like to know the details below:

    1. Do you get any error message?
    2. Are there any error message in the Event Viewer? Please provide it if it has.

    I suggest that you should create a new project and try again.

    On the other hand, please try repair your VS and try again.

    Thanks

    Best Regards

    If it's running, then you have to stop the project before you do those.

    Hi

    Make sure that file exisits in your folder, may not be there.

    When you delete first time it might be deleted, but still it could appear.

    Try to exclude from the project and build.

    Thanks
