fatal error LNK1168: cannot open 'filename.exe' for writing

Hi guys how you all doing?.. I have just finished my University work and having a free week before joining the Industry. Recently I was trying to do some projects using Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express in Windows 8 Operating System environment. When I tried to build few solutions I came with the Error called

fatal error LNK1168: cannot open 'filename.exe' for writing

Recently I have disabled some windows services since Some features were slowing down my laptop. Then I realized that I have disabled the Application Experience Service also. 

If you experience the same error go to Start >> Run >> services.msc

Then start the Application Experince Service. That's it. It will solve the error.


  1. This solution is not working for me. Do you have any other solution?
