Can't create objects and dependencies directories


I'm new to CB and just exploring the IDE

Don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but when I try to compile a project, I keep getting errors that say that the output directories can't be created, and the path where they should be created isn't the one appearing in the error message. I even created the directories manually but the error keeps appearing.

Can anyone help me with this?

When asking for help, you should give as much info as possible...
Give us the following info:

* codeblocks version
* OS Version
* Full compile log

In order to enable the full compile log, in beta5, go to "Settings/Configure plugins/Compiler", switch to the "Other" tab and select "Full compile log" for your compiler. Then re-compile...


Well... here it goes
I'm using beta 5 release on a WinXP SP2
I set the compiler log to full logging. I didn't find any actual log file, so, i guess the log is in the compiler tab.

--- Code: ---Project   : CEGUIBase

--- End code ---

The error messages don't appear in this log but they just say something like  "Can't create dependencies output directory C:\Build\.deps" and that's not even the place they should be created. Same for the object output directories.
I followed the example you posted for compiling Ogre3D with a very similar tree structure and two compiler targets (Release | Debug)...

any clues?

Yes, wait for beta6. It's coming this week ;)
Seriously, all these issues have been ironed out.


Great!.. thanks a lot Yiannis for great IDE and such great support
