I have a corrupted ttf file that I tried to use in a scene, and after the render
failed, went to delete it.

"The action can't be completed because the file is open in POV-Ray for Windows
v3.8-beta"

Perhaps make a note that all files need to be closed before exiting the
parser.Maybe I'll keep the file to the side, to run an experiment to see if I
can open a fresh scene and close the open file by name from there - without
having to close POV-Ray and then open it again.

I sometimes see that behavior in other image-processing apps I have; I don't
think it's exclusive to POV-ray. I can't give specifics because it happens only
rarely, when I have two apps open that share a resource like an image-- or at
one point did-- and when both apps are still open and I try to delete something.
I don't remember exactly what I do each time to fix the situation; probably
shutting down one of the apps(?). Sorry that I can't be more helpful.

Are you sure that you need to close out all your active POV-ray scenes to solve
it? I have *multitudes* of scenes always loaded when I start the program-- 3.8
beta 1 on Windows-- and I've never had to resort to that drastic solution.

I forgot to ask: Can you reproduce the problem and the steps that caused it? (if
you haven't already trashed the bad ttf file)
