Windows Azure - Access to the path 'ServiceDefinition.build.csdef' is denied.

If you receive this error:
Error 102 Unable to copy file "ServiceDefinition.csdef" to "ServiceDefinition.build.csdef". Access to the path 'ServiceDefinition.build.csdef' is denied. C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v10.0\Windows Azure Tools\1.4\Microsoft.WindowsAzure.targets

The problem is that the file 'ServiceDefinition.build.csdef' is read-only. You will be able to find this file in your cloud project (.ccproj) directory. If you remove the read-only setting, the error will disappear and build and publish commands will work properly.
