Exception:

mt.exe : general error c101008d: Failed to write the updated manifest to the resource of file "XXXXXX.exe". Access is denied.

Explanation:

The error may occur in some situations due to a race condition between the compiler process and the anti-virus file-system auto-protect.

Workaround:

 Disable deferred file scanning by adding a registry key.

 

1. Click Start > Run 

2. Type in: regedit and click OK

3. Navigate to: 

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\AV\Storages\Filesystem\RealTimeScan" (32 bit Operating System) or

“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\AV\Storages\Filesystem\RealTimeScan” (64 bit Operating System)

4. Click Edit > New > DWORD Value

5. Name the new value: DeferredScanning

6. Open DeferredScanning

7. In the Value data field add “0” (1 = on, 0 = off)

8. Click OK

9. Close the Registry Editor window.
