    [Moved] Carbide V1.3 Error

    Hello
    we have installed Carbide v1.3 in C directory and donot allowed our students to access the C directory. When the student tries to build the project following error occurs

    **Invoking bldmake command
    perl.exe -S bldmake.pl bldfiles winscw
    WARNING: EPOCROOT does not specify an existing directory
    BLDMAKE ERROR: Directory "\Symbian\8.1a\S60_2nd_FP3\EPOC32\" does not exist

    === BLDMAKE Command failed with error code 1 ===
    But when student tries to built in basic application in the directory of S60_2nd_FP3 it runs

    Any suggestions how to go about it in academic envoirnment

    Few questions:
    1) Did you import any existing project from S60ex directory under C:\Symbian\8.1a\S60_2nd_FP3 and it ran?
    2) Were you able to manage to create new project under Carbide.c++ 1.3 for S60 2nd FP3 SDK?

    Generally Carbide.c++, SDK etc... should reside on the same drive. In your case you mapped it to some other drive. So i guess this might be a problem in your case.

    Re: Carbide V1.3 Error

    4-5 years ago we started with SDK+projects residing on drive d:, and Visual Studio 6 (it was a bit earlier indeed) was residing on read-only drive c: (and the SDK was also backed up there). It was actually working, but it was then, I have not tried this setup neither with CodeWarrior, nor with any version of Carbide.

    Now we use Virtual PC-s with write-protected hard-disk image + enabled undo disk. If you have at least 1 gigabyte of memory in the developer machines, it should work well (you can give about 640 megabytes to the VPC, even if some smaller programs, services are running on the host machine).

    Re: Carbide V1.3 Error

    Let's not forget that Windows XP supports junctions so directories can be mapped wherever in the files system, regardless of their actual location.

    If the students are supposed to work on drive J then why not map C:\Symbian to J:\Symbian? And the script that does the mapping can also take care of cleaning the SDK so that each student starts with a clean emulator.

    See Mark Russinovich's Junction v1.05
