This is a problem with the application that you are using, not with the factory client. The application is not releasing it's file when it is done for some reason.

I suggest you report this to the application developers. As a workaround, you could create a .bat file wrapper for your CLI application. At the end, make it sleep for a few seconds to wait for the application to release it's resources.

Note that Windows does not have a sleep command or something similar. You need to install it manually or fake it using e.g. the ping command. See:
