Welcome to TeX.SX. Make sure your PDF isn't open in adobe reader. It (and some other readers) lock the file on view. –  Sean Allred Apr 24 at 12:56
Thx for the fast answer. I have all my pdf-Readers closed before I build the file. What do you mean by "lock the file on view" –  javaEE-Newbie Apr 24 at 13:11
A big problem in state machines is that of concurrent editing; many pieces of software (sometimes, even the OS) will 'lock' the file so that no other programs (eg. LaTeX) can write to it. –  Sean Allred Apr 24 at 13:20
Thx for the explanation. Unfortunately that's not the problem here...As I sad, I always close all pfd-Reader before I build the file –  javaEE-Newbie Apr 24 at 13:22
I have solved the problemd. The problem was FoxitReader. I closed it before I build the project but just closing is not enough...you have to kill the process in the task-manager every time you want to build...That's why I switched to Summatra-PDF because it really get closed without needing to kill the process –  javaEE-Newbie Apr 24 at 14:28
