    5th edition SDK installation error

    When installing 5th edition SDK, I get many error panels one after another with the text like this:

    "The following error occured on the file
    C:\S60\S60_5th_Edition_SDK_v0.9\epoc32\release\winscw\udeb\z\resource\widgetmenu.r10
    Can not create file or folder"

    Installation path C:\S60.
    Processor Pentium 4, 2.8GHz.
    Memory 1.5GB.
    OS Windows XP SP2.

    What is wrong?

    I have an idea to reformat disk to NTFS, because it works better in case of many files in one folder. (current file system is FAT32).

    Can it help?

    Re: 5th edition SDK installation error

    The SDK contains some 34000 localized resource files which should in fact be removed. On FAT32 that is apparently a bit too much.

    Since you probably don't want to format your drive you may consider running a batch script in parallel with the SDK installation and delete all the *.r* files from that directory other than the *.rsc and *.r01 (or better yet move them to another location, something like .\back\<ext>\<file>.<ext>).

    That way the files remaining in the SDKs will be the default/English localized resources and that's all you need.

    Hi,
    I've solved that using TrueCrypt NTFS drive. If someone haven't used TC, I suggest giving it a try, it is marvellous and really easy to use. Available on Mac OS/X too.
