1. Registered user of B4A, registered Android/iPhone Developer.
2. Standard install with extra for remote compiler of B4i
3. Set the correct IP address to my external IP, and tried internal
4. For simplicity installed it to c:\b4i instead of default which also didn't work.

5. Build Configurations, standard.


6. Build server setting set correctly with correct password


7. Paths as follows, project saved in c:\temp\b4iex.b4i


8. Press Run in Debug mode. Constantly get the directory name is invalid.


Cannot work out what it could be. Please assist!

Hi, as mentioned, it is simply c:\temp - full rights.
It used to be on a portable hard drive as a different project. I've tried all.

Same exact error in c:\users\simon\documents with standard code untouched, below is the screen.

'Code module
#Region Project Attributes
#ApplicationLabel: B4i Example
#Version: 1.0.0
'Orientation possible values: Portrait, LandscapeLeft, LandscapeRight and PortraitUpsideDown
#iPhoneOrientations: Portrait, LandscapeLeft, LandscapeRight
#iPadOrientations: Portrait, LandscapeLeft, LandscapeRight, PortraitUpsideDown
#End Region

Sub Process_Globals
'These global variables will be declared once when the application starts.
'Public variables can be accessed from all modules.
Public App As Application
Public NavControl As NavigationController
Private Page1 As Page

End Sub

Private Sub Application_Start (Nav As NavigationController)
NavControl = Nav
Page1.Title = "Page 1"
Page1.RootPanel.Color = Colors.White
End Sub

Private Sub Page1_Resize(Width As Int, Height As Int)

End Sub

Private Sub Application_Background

End Sub

Hi, again no luck. Surely this was tested before release?

Getting token.

installed in c:\b4i, with full network, everyone, administrator, users access to c:\temp where the sample project lies. Why?

Congrats, new problem:

Parsing code. 0.00
Compiling code. 0.01
Compiling layouts code. 0.00
Compiling debugger engine code. 0.29

But if that is covered in full in the other forum please let me know. I am a Registered Developer. Any more apps on the Appstore yet from B4I?
