First, a bit of background. I had just recently installed my Logitech Webcam software, and later on today I've deleted the installer to the recycle bin and am trying to empty the recycle bin. When I do this, I get this message:

Firstly, why is this happening in the first place? It's simply an installer? The application itself has installed fine and I should have no problem deleting the installer, right?

What does it mean, "because file is open in Application Experience"? What on earth is this?

Also, why is the file named "lws201_full.exe", yet in that image I have provided, it's called "$RX8JXFZ.exe"? Also worth noting that the file is 0 bytes in the image I provided, yet the original file itself is 114 MB . Say what?!

The file deletes itself fine if I cancel or try again, but I still don't understand why this happens.


Thanks so much for your assistance in clarifying this issue for me.

Sorry, I may not have clarified that I am looking for an explanation, not a fix. The file will delete itself fine if I click "Cancel or "Try again".

My main inquiry is, why does this happen and, what is "Application Experience" and why would it be keeping an installer file from being deleted?

Why is the file named "lws201_full.exe", yet in that image I have provided, it's called "$RX8JXFZ.exe"? Why is the file is 0 bytes in the image I provided, yet the original file itself is 114 MB?

Thanks so much for your help

So then, this is normal? "Application Experience" was 'using' the installer because it had a compatibility issue? And the 0 Byte file and different file name I'm guessing are attributed to "Application Experience" temporary files or something?
