Full Build Output

When attempting to build the attached test project, the following error occurs in the (attached) build log:

error MSB4018: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\src\XXX\dev\addons\trunk\src\Butler.Tablet.AndroidUi\obj\Debug\res\layout\buildingslistfragment.xml.bk' is denied.

The bk files are appearing somewhat randomly. The user only has axml files in the layout resources folder. 

If the user removes the obj folder from source directory, sometimes the build finishes successfully.

Changing build configuration (and thereby build folder), will result in 1 successful build. But afterwards the problem reoccurs. In addition,continuously pressing start debug (f5) will eventually result in success, although it will fail multiple times. 

Has attempted to run VS as an Admin with the same results.

I am unable to replicate this issue. I suspect what ever permissions are on that temp file are being removed  when the file is uncompressed. 

Next time if happens can you try going into Powershell and running 

Get-ChildItem | Get-Acl

To get a list of the permissions for the the files in the directory that is causing an issue. We might be able to track down where permission is blocking the file from use.

I'm closing this as no further information has been provided and we cannot reproduce similar issues with latest stable builds. Please feel free to reopen if the problem recurs.
