You are of course aware that this is not a proper place for a repository,

Okay, so at least it should work. However, two suggestions:
1. Turn off virus scanners. Those tend to hook into file operations and
sometimes make it impossible to move/lock/delete files while scanning.
2. Use your home directory instead. If that changes anything, it seems that
you only assumed the account had the required permissions.

This might be unimportant. There are several functions in the win32 API where
you first call with a zero-sized buffer (and thus always get a buffer
overflow) to determine the required size, it might be one of those cases.
