I've last compiled Pidgin on Windows with version 2.6.2 for an enterprise
project I was working on and I didn't have any issues.  I recently had
to resurrect the project again but with the latest source code.

There are new instructions for compiling on versions greater that 2.7.0,
which I followed to the T on both Windows 7 and Windows XP.

When I try to compile, everything is humming along until I get to libpurple.

sed -e 's/@PURPLE_VERSION@/2.7.2/g' \
            win32/ > win32/libpurplerc.rc
windres -I../libpurple -i win32/libpurplerc.rc -o win32/libpurplerc.o
Access is denied.
ing failed.

Any idea on what this error is?  It happens on both 2.7.2 and 2.7.3.
