ERROR EC1338: Unable to open source file for copy to local agent:


An error occurred when trying to open the specified file for copying to a temporary file for use by an agent running on the same host as emake itself. The OS error message provides the specific cause of the failure.


Because the error involves an external system in this context (the filesystem on the emake host), the list of possible causes for this error is virtually limitless: a corrupted filesystem; hardware failure; insufficient permissions; and so on. Refer to the specific OS error message to determine the cause of the failure.


The fix depends on the cause of the error.
