Running 1450 in Portable mode, I am randomly getting this error, quite frequently (for different songs)
[Window Title] 9. Manic Street Preachers - From Despair To Where - MediaMonkey [Content] Cannot create file "Z:\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey4\Portable\MediaMonkey.registry". The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process [OK]
I left the whole album playing from track 1 and this occurred while track 9 was playing.
After closing MM4, I was able to rename the file, so it wasn't locked by another process.
I have just seen the exact same issue. I am also running Win 7 x64. No music was playing (I had only just started the app and it had begun the startup scan. I will send a debug log if I see the issue again

Hi Ludek, I agree. I was only running one instance of the software so that isn't the culprit. With it being a non-standard file type it is unlikely to be used by antything other than MM. Multithreading???
You should be able to easily find this by using Process Explorer ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysi ... s/bb896653 ). When the error appears, run Process Explorer and select Menu->Find->Find handle or DLL... Type MediaMonkey.registry and you will see which process takes it.
