0x80070570:  Error cannot delete file.

Could be:
1) user doesn't have permissions to delete files;
2) the files are in use preventing them from being deleted;

Some variant of the latter is more likely.  There could be a race.  Are the files deployed by Components only, are some of them Copied, or is a CustomAction used to install or modify them?

I'm working on a bundle which uses my custom bootstrapper application, and installs my .msi file.
Sometimes when running the bundle.exe on my test machine I get errors of type 0x80070570, But on a different machine it has no errors.
Both machines run Windows 10.

Any idea what could be the reason?
