Title: Error messages when trying to create projects
Post by: Michael2 on May 17, 2018, 02:10:12 am
Whenever I create a new project, I get two error messages.  The first one reads, "Couldn't save project <invalid path> (Maybe the file is write-protected?)"  The second one reads "Could not open the file 'main.cpp'.  The file does not exist."  How can I fix this problem?

What is the path you've selected in the wizard where the project would be saved?

I don't know.  I don't know how to find that.  I'm trying to reinstall it now.

Well, I see where the <invalid path> is coming from, but I don't know how to change it.

I think I've got it now.  I didn't realize you had to create a folder to save the project in.

In theory C::B will automatically create the folder you've specified in the wizard.
Is this working correctly?
