That error can be caused by a file permission / sharing issue. You could 
try to restart your computer to make sure no process is hanging around 
and accessing a file that TRNSYS is trying to write to or close, then 
check that all files in your installation directory and in your project 
directory are not read only. You can also check those folders for empty 
files that usually indicate something went wrong in a file i/o operation.
Note that TRNBuild should be closed before the simulation actually 
starts. If it stays open during the simulation, this probably indicates 
a problem there (.bui, .bld, etc.).
As usual, if the problem persists and it is related to a particular 
project, you should send that project to your distributor.
