Answer/Solution:

The most likely cause of the above error is using VSS6.0d version with StarTeam 2005 r2. According to 2005 R2 server release note "StarTeam 2005 Release 2 may not successfully wrap or interoperate with projects using VSS 6d installations on the StarTeam Server"s computer. To avoid problems, use an earlier release"

Hence to avoid access denied error, perform the wrap with VSS6.0c instead of VSS6.0d.
