Bamboo - MSBUILD : error MSB1022: Response file does not exist.

Since two days we have this message when trying to build our windows binaries via msbuild task
(Visual Studio express 2012 on Windows 7 agents => MSBuild v4.0 32 bits).
In plan metadada, there is a key called "",
with C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Temp\[file_name].rsp, but there is nothing available at this location. Can I remove/clean something? Restarting bamboo agent service didn't help.

Was there any resolution to this? I am having the same problem!

There is a knowledge base article on this problem:

Basically this can happen when the user that bamboo-agent is running as can't write to the temporary directory.  

You can set the temp directory with the startup option:\tempDir
