Mattermost quitting unexpectedly EBUSY

Hello, I am getting the following error when starting up a self-host version of Mattermost at the company I work for

Application: Mattermost 5.0.1 Platform: Windows_NT 10.0.19042 x64 Error: EBUSY: resource busy or locked, open 'C:\Users\imcabee\AppData\Roaming\Mattermost\config.json' at C:\Users\imcabee\AppData\Local\Programs\mattermost-desktop\resources\app.asar\index.js:41010:19 at fs.js:1504:7 at FSReqCallback.oncomplete (fs.js:180:23)

What could the issue be and how can I correct this?

You might want to do a upgrade first
