I'm not sure of the exact problem. I've seen and read about a few other similar instances. The commonality between the problems seems to be file locks on the files trying to be read. The particular instance I have personally seen was when my virus scan software had locked a file for scanning while I was building. If I recall rebooting resolved my issue but I've read other posts where recreating the project directory in a new location resolved the issue. I think the important thing to consider when looking at resolving this issue is trying to determine what is preventing read access to these files.

I had a project which was giving this error and rebooted my PC and then moved my project to a new location and it worked fine. But i am getting the same error again for a different project and this solution of rebooting or moving the project to a different location is not working. Any other suggestions on how to get rid of this?.

Does D:\New Folder\Script Files\Setup.inx exist? Did you check its permissions?
Try running Process Monitor from sysinternals.microsoft.com . It should tell you if there's an access conflict and what the exact error is.

Yes setup.inx is generated at runtime and its present at the mentioned location , it doesn't have any access restrictions and the process is also not locked. I monitored using process monitor and it seems to be fine. Not sure what is causing the issue. Any other way to debug this?

The build was failing in my licensed version of 2010 , i downloaded the trail copy of 2013 and tried building the project using 2013 and it builds without any errors. If i install the patches for 2010 will it help? , now i am sure its not the problem with my project.. Kindly advice.
