The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process:
This can be:

  • a hanging client instance that wasn't closed properly
  • a still running game
  • a retarded AntiVirus

For 1) and 2) you either manually kill the process in the task manager or restart your PC.
For 3) you disable your antivirus, configure it correctly or consider that additional AntiVirus in 2022 is useless (Microsoft Defender offers the same level of security)
