    EPOCROOT does not exists

    Hi,

    I'm trying to use the Symbian SDK with the Borland C++ builder I downloaded from Forum Nokia.
    The first message that appears when I try to start a new mobile application or build is that "EPOCROOT does not exists in the selected drive(C:)". I think the settings in "TOOLS --> Mobile Options" are Ok.
    Someone can help me?

    Thank you !

    Open DOS box
    call regedit

    Find the EPOCROOT keyword

    This message is shown, if you try to start Symbian tools from a different drive than where your SDK is installed. For instance: I have my SDKs on drive F:, when I put "epoc" on command prompt, when current directory is C:\ and then changed to F:\, I get following:

    C:\>epoc
    ERROR: EPOCROOT must specify an existing directory.

    C:\>f:

    F:\>epoc
    -- Emulator starts normally.

    Unfortunately, this means that you need to reinstall your IDE or SDK so that they are located on a same drive... Also your projects should be on same drive.

    What does your EPOCROOT variable contain? The error message you provided looks weird - "epoc42\tools/bldmake.pl line 31."-part especially so
