Visual Studio build fails because .svn\wc.db is open

For a variety of reasons the intent is for me to commit only compiled code to a repository. I admit I am a relative newbie to using a repository and TortoiseSVN. What I have done so far is:

- Create a directory in my repository under /branches (as I was directed)
- Checkout the empty branch to my populated build directory
- SVN Commit the directory to the repository (which uploaded all the files)

        At this point if I try to build again, I get the message:

Error 5 Unable to delete file "C:\Users\.....\Test Server\\.svn\wc.db". The process cannot access the file 'C:\Users\.....\Test Server\\.svn\wc.db' because it is being used by another process.

So presumably that's because TortoiseSVN has wc.db open and thus Visual Studio can't delete it to repopulate the folder. How do I work around that? Is there a better way to accomplish this?
