Visual Studio fails build with: "Error executing c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe"

P: 2
visual studio creates a temporary batch file during build and fails to run the file using cmd.exe. I'm getting the following error message on te output window: "error executing c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe"
Does anyone know how do I get rid of this message?

Have you checked to see if cmd.exe exists at that location?

Yes, it's there.
It probabely has to do with the project settings but I don't know what it is. This temporary batch file trys to copy a lib file from the debug folder to the lib folder.

This sounds more like the project has a custom build step in it that is not working correctly.
