This happens usually when you're trying to compile a new copy your application while its actually running. Close it then compile.

i restarted visual studio and it didnt work, i restarted my pc and now it works lol 

To avoid this next time, don't start the program externally via Explorer then compiling it in visual studio before its closed.
