I suspect there is still a misunderstanding: your project very likely still refers to these files via a relative path, not through the junction. You can verify this by looking at the list of files at the end of the .visualdproj file with a text editor.

Ok, you are right. I think i might have dragged some items in manually from the file explorer after I removed them thinking I didn't need them after I dragged in the junction.

I noticed this:

    <File path="Libraries\arsd\color.d" />
    <File path="Libraries\arsd\gamehelpers.d" />
    <File path="..\..\..\Game\Game\Libraries\arsd\png.d" />
    <File path="Libraries\arsd\simpledisplay.d" />
    <File path="Libraries\arsd\stb_truetype.d" />

(note that they are all the same paths!)

In any case, it should be an easy fix either way?

Maybe the relative paths are causing D's file routines to crap out?

So, this is definitely the reason for the errors. I manually removed the ..\'s and was able to get the project to copy.

Note that when the files are separately dragged in they can produce different results.

The paths are valid but but it seems like the copy routines do not understand relative and mixed paths.

Now I get

created clean copy of the project in D:\Projects\Game\Game\Game.dustmite
Failed to make stdin stream inheritable by child process (Access is denied.)

so now getting that error about stdin that I get from a fresh project... this seems like a bug in Visual D too.

This is probably a recently fixed problem in std.process and should be fine in https://github.com/dlang/visuald/releases/tag/v0.48.0-beta2
