May be outdated, but I found the solution...

In case nobody has ever figuered this problem out, after awhile I realized that it can't write that file because they put a ':' (semicolon) in the .obj files name. Therefore, if you

1.)go to Project >> Options
2.)under the directories tab, "show directories for:", select the output files pulldown
3.) delete any of those entries that have a ':'

The default output directory is the project's directory, so I don't know why Symantec did that in the first place. Hope this helps.
