AAGGHHH!!!! PULLING MY HAIR OUT!!
I am getting this error...
Unable to write the theme to the specified output location. Please check the permissions and path specified.
I/O Error: C:\Documents and Settings\Andrea\Local Settings\Temp (Access is denied)
Error: File com_plazmic_theme_DiamondsAreAGirlsBestFriendPink. cod cannot be created. (-1)
1) I am saving to L/blackberryapps/pink diamonds
why is it directing to a different file and not exporting where I tell it to??!!?? I have changed the file name... no change... I even uninstalled and re installed theme builder... still will not export. Any Ideas at all?? I am so stumped and about ready to scream!

Two things could play as a solution to your problem.
Solution one: make yourself as na Admin on your computer and that should let you access all of the folders and files without a problem, thus for letting you export files to any location.
Second solution (better one): when you trying to export a theme, make sure you click on a little yellow folder (right below the name) and specify location to, lets say your Desktop or My Documents folder.
That should help you out.
Let me know how this works out for you.

Thanks for the reply Amusic... However This does not address my issue. I have tried to save it in several different locations (by clicking the little yellow folder...lol) And none will save. I am the admin on my computer... I get no other errors such as font or placement errors... any other ideas?

What kind of theme are you working on? Is it on the Storm or another handset? Does it use a lot of complicated SVG coding? Are you using a full set of custom icons?
Something I've come across while working on the Storm and Storm2 is that if you're using a lot of lengthy SVG coding, and then you try to use custom icons, it will spit out similar errors to the one you're experiencing right now. The only solution I've found to combat this is to either do one of two things:
If you're using custom icons in addition to SVG coding, I'd suggest resetting the icons to default first and try to export your theme.
If that doesn't work, or if you're not using custom icons, then try removing the SVG files and exporting.
Hopefully this will help lead to a solution.

Do you have a problems with other themes or just this one?
Let me know as based on your error it doesn't look like it is a theme problem but rather location where you saving it.

no luck :-((. I even tried sizing down a bunch of the fonts and nothin... I thought myself to be a pretty competent theme builder, but this issue has me be beyond stumped. I hate to do it with the countless hours I have put into it, but I think I am going to have to start from scratch and export at various stages and see if/when I come up with the same error. This is the first 5.0 storm2 theme i have made so I am not as familiar with all the ins and outs as I am with the curve and pearl themes. Thanks for your guidance thus far, I will update this post when I figure out what i did!
