Learning the IDE

Post by bluebird » Sat Dec 31, 2016 6:09 am

I'm trying to learn to use the IDE. I started with the HMG Reference Quick Start.

After creating a new directory c:\hmg3.4.3\MySourceCode\Project1, I select the New Project icon
and get the New Project window.

When I give the new project a name, say MyProject, I get an error window box

"Invalid Project Name/Path (Spaces ...etc ....Not Allowed)"

Please in form what is going wrong. I think I am following the instructions.

Give simple name, eg. MyFirstProject
After that, save project in selected directory

Thanks, but whatever project name I give it, I still get this "invalid name/path .... " error.

I am stating the IDE from the IDE directory installed within c:\hmg3.4.3 and created a new directory called ProjectOne

With a project name like MyProject what can be causing my error?

Happy New Year to All

Happy New Year to All!!

Hi Bluebird,

I have the same problem.
To overcome for the time being:
create folder MyFirstProject and then OPEN folder from IDE, after saving your PRG+HBP in this folder.

Dear Serge

Have you solved the above problem of failure to start a new project. Mine no longer words even after doing your suggestions (although it worked once)

Thanks

Hi Bluebird,

You have to make a new folder with your projects and start a new project there. For example: C:\Projects\MyProject.
It's because the IDE doesnt like '.' characters inside the path so the c:\hmg3.4.3. path isnt working.

I hope it helps.
Best Regards

Path names also WITHOUT spaces or other strange chars. So only use ASCI a-z A-Z 0-9 + standard chars.
