Unloading modules from Editor.exe


When the editor.exe is open, it has loaded all packages (.dlls). Therefor, when trying to re-build a particular package, you will get an error from Visual Studio because it can’t access the .dll because it’s being used by another process (editor.exe). Is there a way to unload all modules?

In NI TestStand, there is a menu option (File > Unload All Modules), which unloads DLLs so that another process can access them. Is this a feature that can be added?

I have submitted this as a request. Generally, we recommend to close the Editor since some DLLs also affect what is displayed in that UI.
