QUESTION

I am getting link error 213. I/O error on workfile: exception 0029h: access to file denied. This is a very simple project, just one file. What's going on?

ANSWER

This problem is the result of a TMP environment variable either pointing to an invalid directory or a non-existant directory. Make sure your evironment pathspecs are pointing to a valid TMP directory. This variable may also be defined in the autoexec.bat file. Confirm that the file is correctly specified there as well. Our tools use any of the more common terms for tempory file storage. So check TMP, TEMP, and C51TMP when looking for the problem.
