Visual Studio c++ Only in Debug Mode LNK 1104 error

I've just created c++ console application in Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate.

When I run code in debug mode:

error LNK1104: cannot open file 'C:\Users\example.exe'

When I run code in release mode:

Build: 1 succeeded

Do you have any idea, why would i have LNK1104 on "debug mode" ?

Ok, I think I found the solution.

I found the following message

So Bitdefender exactly deleted my .exe file everytime I compile in debug version.

Solution :

Go to Antivirus part:

Click excluded files and folders on Exclusion tab

Finally add your project path

I did this way and my roject also worked in debug version.

I hope the solution is helpful
