SOLVED ChromeDriver.exe prevents recompile of script exe

This is a tribal knowledge share, hopefully saves you hairloss and some time.

When using ChromeDriver.exe in a script sometime this will prevent a script .exe from recompile.

The error will mention something like EF Create Error... access violation, in use, etc.

To stop this error, kill the ChromeDriver.exe in the task manager and recompile with out error.

Chromedriver will keep the most recent script .exe open (in use) in the background and the task must be killed to close the open file.
