Oh, sorry, my fault. But in that case you are trying to do smth very strange
Take a look at the signature of path::filename. It returns a copy of the
filename part. You just assign a new value to the temporary string. And than
your app tries to delete the executable itself, which is locked by the
running process. That's why you get an error.
Your intention probably was:
path.remove_filename() /= L"compilation date.txt";
boost::filesystem::remove(path); //should work
