I don't know what's causing the problems you're seeing, but perhaps

Thanks Knut, but it doesn't work too. I still get this error:

F:\eclipsework\trunk\build.xml:1874: Unable to delete file

I often build on Windows Vista SP2 with Cygwin, and I haven't seen this

Thanks Dag for sharing this. I think then the problem might with the way
windows user privileges. Though I have't tried it over Windows XP to be sure
if this is with other version of windows or specific to Windows 7

@Bryan, Kathey thanks for bringing this perspective. May be I am not very
much aware of the difference between the removal of currently used file on
linux and windows platforms. If linux allows removing the files being used
or if ant behaves differently(not sure if it does), then it seems to be a
probable reason.

It is important to keep the results for analysis after a run.  For some

Kathey, thanks. Now I get it.
May be this could be taken as a part of GSoC ? I am not completely aware of
the intricacies behind it at the moment.
 Any suggestions or advises ?
