SSIS Project Permission Errors

I'm trying to build an SSIS BIDS project that was developed by a different user but keep getting this error when trying to build the project.

Error      1      System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\SSISProjects\AxisProject\AxisProject\bin\Package.dtsx' is denied.     at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)     at System.IO.File.SetAttributes(String path, FileAttributes fileAttributes)     at Microsoft.DataTransformationServices.Project.DataTransformationsProjectBuilder.BuildIncremental(IOutputWindow outputWindow)            0      0      

I also noticed that when I try to execute the package, it prompts to save the file as.

All development is being done on the server itself.  Both of us are local admins on the server and have sysadmin roles on the db server.  The directory referenced in the error message has Full control permissions for the local admin group.

What is causing this error?

Many thanks,

Access the BIDS program from the Start menu as normal, but instead right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator - then see if your still getting the same issues.

I know this may not give the final answer on what is causing this error but it may help to get an angle on what is going on -
 maybe BIDS is by default opening in some security context which has restricted permissions to the dtsx or even to the project in question.
