Updated my XP Pro System. Now VC++ 2005 Pro can't create tem file

P: n/a

error PRJ0006 : Could not open the temporary file
'c:\Project\CompressMorphis\Release\RSP00000133601 984.rsp'. Make sure the
file exists and that the directory is not write-protected.
1>Compiling...
1>Project : error PRJ0003 : Error spawning '/Ox'.

_______________________________________

I've checked the attributes, but when I do a "windows properties" it comes
up showing the directory with a greyed out "checked" button for "read only"
selected.

How do I get this back to the point of being able to build my code? This
problem seems to crop up in All my projects now...

I could always copy them to a "NEW" directory and see if that affects
things. I did just make use of a "simpleTech" 500G USB drive and ArcSoft
backup to backup the system. Would this have messed things up.

I should have probably run VSC++ 2005 sooner to see if the "en-mass" updates
I accepted onto the system broke something... :-(
Thanks.

That's not grayed out as in disabled, but partially darkened, meaning that
some, but not all, of the files in the directory are readonly. A couple
clicks should clear it, removing all the readonly attributes on all files.

I've "unselected" the read only attribute and it keeps coming back.

I've even ran "attrib -R /S *" on the directories. Since VC++ is trying to
Create a "New" file... What is stopping it?

The only time I've seen this kind of thing is when trying to change an
"admin" owned file in the system directories....

I'm now to the point that I figure the system needs to be booted with XP pro
system disk and a repair done.

I'm getting $Mft errors, and it looks like the fundamental problem is
something got trashed with the file permissions. When I try to change file
permissions to add "modify" access for "Users" so that MSVC++8 can create
temp files, it complains about a temp file being corrupt/broken.

Unless I can find a utility that repairs the file permissions... It looks
like the only fix is to boot with the install disk and do a "repair".
