Cant build - Readonly

Postby sfx81 » Sat Nov 29, 2008 8:58 am

Hi All.
I am new to this community and have just downloaded the Newton SDK, extracted, and installed it. When I try to build C:\Program Files\NewtonSDK\samples\Tutorials.dsw, it is not getting through. At startup it’s complaining about read-only tutorials.ncb file. Then when I build tutorial1, it again complains about read-only folder tutorial1GettingStarted. I have tried to change that by changing the access right of parent ‘samples’ folder and its children so that its not read only, but that’s not helping either.
I am using Microsoft visual studio 2005 pro, windows vista.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Regards
Kazz

If i remember correctly, vista blocks access to writing files in program files directory. install the SDK elsewhere where msvc will have write access.
