UWP Can't compile to Windows UWP

I followed the instructions very clearly on setting up GM2 and my PC to compile to UWP. I have the device portal set up and everything. I downloaded Visual Studio 17 and have the appropriate files downloaded. I added my PC as the device, clicked compile, and get this error:

System.NotSupportedException: The given path's format is not supported.
at System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission.EmulateFileIOPermissionChecks(String fullPath)
at System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission.QuickDemand(FileIOPermissionAccess access, String fullPath, Boolean checkForDuplicates, Boolean needFullPath)
at System.IO.File.InternalCopy(String sourceFileName, String destFileName, Boolean overwrite, Boolean checkHost)
at Igor.WinUWPBuilder.BuildWindowsUAPProject(String package_name, String _targetfile, Boolean _final)
at Igor.WinUWPBuilder.Run()

What exactly is happening?
 
From what you have posted, I can't really tell what the issue is, but what it says here

Is probably the issue. Do you have any special characters in your projects name? or is a directory that is being used have any special characters? Like " : * & % $ # @ !"

Since when I run a test it runs ok for me.

No I do not have any special characters in my project name. This problem is only specific to my one project. My other project compiles fine. I have no idea what to do. I almost want to build a new project and copy past all my code/assets to the new project. Is this something that is possible?

I fixed the problem!!! I exported my entire project and then created a new project and imported all the code and sprites. I have no idea how the original project got messed up. Oh well.
 
I was about to say I once had a problem with the cache being locked somehow, so I just clicked Save As, and saved the project to a different name and it worked.

But glad it's working now!
