boost::filesystem::read_symlink: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process: "c:\Users
Im running windows 7 64bit service pack 1 installed on a solid state drive with my "Users" directory shunted to a secondary drive using a junction.
Autosaves work fine its just when i actually click the "Save Game" button in the menu the button looks depressed but nothing else happens until the error message pops. Then the game immeaditly closes when the ok button is pressed on the error message
im fairly sure this has only started happening since 11.17 but i will roll back and check with an older version tommorw.
