    I just started development under the Series 60 SDK for Symbian OS.
    I have this problem with compilation of the hello world example.
    I do as follows:

    I use the directory by the instalation.

    "bldmake bldfiles"

    It gives me these errors,

    C:\Symbian\6.1\Series60\Epoc32Ex\HelloWorld>bldmake bldfiles
    ERROR: Must set the EPOCROOT environment variable
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:\SYMBIAN\6.1\SHARED\EPOC32\TOOLS\/E32env.
    pm line 39.
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:\SYMBIAN\6.1\SHARED\EPOC32\TOOLS/bldmake.
    pl line 31.

    What could be the problem? I just installed Visual c++ 6.0, the SDK and service pack 5..
    I have set the path epocroot
    set EPOCROOT=C:\Symbian|6.1\Series60in autoexec.bat

    RE: epocroot

    EPOCROOT can not include a drive letter. You have to set it to:

    Which means that the tools need to be on the same drive that your project is on.
    Ok ?
