Verify that you have a TEMP directory specified in your environment variables and that if one DOES exist, that the directory is valid.

Almost all D015 errors are related to invalid TEMP variable settings.  If you need more info - please feel free to post a follow-up question.

The accepted fix did actualy work but I also found that the main reason the error was ocurring was that there was a "Set TEMP=F:\TEMP" variable in the login script (For old diskless workstations). The actual F:\TEMP dir was valid but NT Workstation seems to get confused with this new setting. You can check it by  going into My Computer/Properties/Enviroment and you can see that the TEMP variable is still %SystemDrive%\TEMP. To correct this I simply made the "Set" command conditional.
