How to delete *.swf or locked files

I have a problem deleteing *.swf files since IDEA has them locked even though they are not read only. How do I make them removeable?

IDEA doesn't lock swf files. It is probably locked by some other program like Flex compiler, Flash Player etc. Where is your swf file located, and how was it created?

The files are located in my IDEA project, both in- and outside of my sources folder, and are locked only in IDEA it works fine to delete it from anywhere else. I have files both created by compiling in IDEA with Flex SDK 4.1 and files created in Flex Builder or Flash.

If you can delete these files using other programs without shutting down IDEA that means that files are not locked. But yes, you are right, 'Delete' action doesn't work for SWF files in IDEA Project View. Please open an issue for that and we will fix it: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/dashboard
