CreateFile fails(error 4, access is denied)

CreateFile fails(error 4, access is denied)

(OP)
Hi!
I'm new with ATL and i have this problem. I created a server component with 1 method CreateHTML. In this method i call CreateFile to a html file, like this:
HANDLE hFile= CreateFile("page.html", GENERIC_WRITE, FILE_SHARE_READ, NULL, CREATE_ALWAYS, FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL, NULL);
CreateFile fails and GetLastError reports the following error: code 4 (access is denied).
Can anyone help me?

RE: CreateFile fails(error 4, access is denied)

This doesn't have anything to do with ATL.  Check to see if there a process that already has the file open for writing.  If so, you can't open it again for writing without also specifying FILE_SHARE_WRITE.  You can try adding FILE_SHARE_WRITE to the dwShareMode to see if that's it.
