    Unhappy It seems that the directory is being used by another sdk

    Do you really want to use it ?"
    I get this message whenever I try to reinstall my sdk . I tried by uninstalling first , but the installation folder remained .I then deleted the folder and tried searching for any keys leading to that folder in my regedit and deleted them manually . But I still get this message and when ever I click on install and running through my installation wizard . When I click "yes" another instance of my sdk comes up in my build configuration and sdk list everytime . Is there any way to solve this problem with this list of sdks ? Please reply , I am confused

    Re: It seems that the directory is being used by another sdk

    I am not entirely sure about the message you get, but it may be something about non-existing SDK. The SDK can be non-existing, because installations are tracked in the registry (dig in HKLM\Software\Nokia), and every new installation except the very first one gets a "version" number, like \Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd_MR_2. If Carbide projects (though I am neither sure if the question is about Carbide) remember the previous/original location - like \Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd_MR in this case - they are right about saying that it does not exist. Since a new one exists in a slightly different location.
