I have a solution targetting .netframework 3.5 and getting build in VS2019.

I am able to build the solution using msbuild. Now days I am trying to create a image to build project successfully inside the container.

My DockerFile looks like as given below:

# escape=`

# Use a specific tagged image. Tags can be changed, though that is unlikely for most images.
# You could also use the immutable tag @sha256:324e9ab7262331ebb16a4100d0fb1cfb804395a766e3bb1806c62989d1fc1326

# Restore the default Windows shell for correct batch processing.

COPY ["Component Factory", "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Component Factory\\"]

# Install .NET Fx 3.5
RUN curl -fSLo microsoft-windows-netfx3.zip https://dotnetbinaries.blob.core.windows.net/dockerassets/microsoft-windows-netfx3-1809.zip `

    && powershell Remove-Item -Force -Recurse ${Env:TEMP}\*

    && (call C:\TEMP\Install.cmd vs_buildtools.exe --quiet --wait --norestart --nocache install `

        --add Microsoft.VisualStudio.Component.VC.Tools.x86.x64 `
        --add Microsoft.VisualStudio.Component.VC.ATL) `
    `
    # Cleanup
    && del /q vs_buildtools.exe

SHELL ["powershell", "-Command", "$ErrorActionPreference = 'Stop'; $ProgressPreference = 'SilentlyContinue';"]
WORKDIR /src

# This entry point starts the developer command prompt and launches the PowerShell shell.
ENTRYPOINT ["C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio\\2019\\BuildTools\\Common7\\Tools\\VsDevCmd.bat", "&&", "powershell.exe", "-NoLogo", "-ExecutionPolicy", "Bypass"]

But build is getting failed saying

(CleanupTemporaryTargetAssembly target) ->
  C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Microsoft.WinFx.targets(480,10): error MSB3061: Unable to delete file "obj\x86\Release\TestA.dll". Access to the path 'C:\src\Repo\TestProject\obj\x86\Release
\TestA.dll' is denied. [C:\src\Repo\TestProject\TestA.csproj]

I tried to delete within container also, its not allowed. There have been discussion around the similar problem but couldn't get concrete root cause and solution. Specially when I am able to build it using outside the container.
