exit code 2 apparently means "The user pressed Ctrl+C to terminate xcopy." ... Which is weird since parameter Y is supposed to prevent user interaction. Do you have by any chance changed your build events? If so can you send them to us?

Just to take the step ahead, what you can try is edit your page build event and change it to something like this:
xcopy "$(SolutionDir)$(ProjectName)" "$(SolutionDir)$(ProjectName)$(OutDir)" /E /I /Y /D
let me know if you still get the same error code.
