Issue #1180 duplicate
created an issue

My visual editor was set to the following path:


I now use Windows 7 and updated the path to

C:\Program Files (x86)\emacs\bin\runemacs.exe

When I now open the settings again and do nothing and then click “OK” I get the following error message:

Translation to english: »The process can't access the file cause it is used by another process.« But of course I don’t have any of those files opened with another program.
