I am developing my fonts and during the testing I export and create the .otf and .ttf files. When I try to delete the test files I get a message "The Action can't be completed because the file is open in the System" I attached a picture of this to this post. I have done a computer restart to and tried again but get the same message. How can I delete the test fonts I am creating>

My test fonts are not listed in C:\Windows\Fonts. The test fonts are not being installed.

I think it is a windows problem, not related to FontCrator... i have some files on my PC unable to delete it too.... maybe need some spacial software to remove it.

The problem was the Preview Pane in Windows Explorer. The Preview was loading the font. When I turned off the Preview Pane the test fonts deleted normally.
