Project Build Error PRJ0016

The user's security settings prevent the process from being created. These settings are required for building.

You are logged in as a user who does not have permissions to create processes using a process. You must change the permission levels for this user account, or contact your account administrator.

This error can also occur if the following registry key is set:

\\HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\RestrictRun

To resolve this error, delete the RestrictRun key. If this registry key is needed, append vcspawn.exe to the list of entries in the key.

Another cause for this error is that your Policy Setting does not include VCSpawn.exe under the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\RestrictRun as an allowed Window program for this user account.
