Right-click on the project folder and go to the Security tab. You should see the User accounts on your system and the respective permissions for each of them.
Select the User account you are using currently and check if all the permissions are set to "Allow".
What you're suggesting is actually the very first thing that I did. And it hasn't helped.
Just to be sure, I went back in and checked, but all permissions were set as shown. (Full access was inherited from the folder settings above.) Because this machine is only used by me and is behind a very secure firewall, pretty much every account on it (and there's really one one -- mine, with administrator priviledges) has full control.

Can you try the following steps:
(1) Right-click on the project folder > Properties > Security > Edit > Add > Advanced.
(2) Type in "NETWORK" in the Name field under Common Queries tab and then click "Find Now" as shown:
(3) Select "NETWORK SERVICE" and click OK > OK.
(4) Then Select "NETWORK SERVICE" and provide all the permissions by setting everything to Allow.
(5) Then click Apply.
Run clean and build on the project. It should work successfully.
Let me know your observations
Well, this is undeniably strange...
What you suggested was among the things I did, and I went back into security settings for the folder "D:\Focus Embedded" under which all active projects reside. What I found was that I wasn't imaging things... I had set all NETWORK SERVICE permissions to "Allow." And it didn't work. But today I re-launched Creator 4.3 just to give it one more try -- and without changing anything from several days ago when I set the permissions as you suggested -- and two projects under that directory that had been having problems both built correctly.
Why your suggestion didn't work three days ago and just did is something of a mystery. And why things would have stopped working at any point (since Creator 4.3 was doing just fine until a few weeks ago) is also a mystery. All I can think is that since when I tried this before and when I tried this today the PC in question has been cold-booted once or twice, so the OS had to go back through a lot of things on startup.t'
It's working now... But it's a queasy feeling when you can't quite say 100% why it stopped and then why it only just restarted.
Then again, I'm working with another board with a USB2.0 hub and a few USB->Serial bridge chips of yours on it, and the first time I plugged it into this machine, Windows took the better part of 20 minutes to find all the drivers and turn all the bridge chips below the hub on all the way.
Welcome to Microsoft...
The plot thickens...
The problem resurfaced, and I checked that permissions were all set correctly (and they were).
So I rebooted the machine, and things started working correctly under Creator again.
I believe Windows has a problem that it seems to forget the permissions set on the drive, but going through a reboot will remind it.
This is indeed strange. But I'm glad there is a workaround even though it is not so convenient. I have Windows 10 v1703 b15063 running and everything works fine for me. Not sure which Windows version you are using, but probably, a Windows update could solve your issue?
