Advice for Windows non English users!

If you are using Windows for your development and it is a non English version and  there are "national characters" in some of your file path´s (Swedish version has) or even different names for some path (Not sure if this is a problem) get a computer with an English version of Windows or have an English version installed on your development computer. It will save you from a lot of  stupid and very time consuming problems. And start out with a test if the simulator can run ok on that computer. Only one of my 3 computers can run the simulator. (The laptop) The others refuse. Rumor says it has something to do with the graphic card. I really do not like to do serious work on a laptop so I have it hooked up on a local area network and access it from my main computer with remote desktop and I have a small but reliable file server with mirrored disks for backup (QNAP)  Windows "SyncToy" is an excellent tool for backup.

Solution #2 (a lot cheaper)

 

Install everything in c:\BB\<Path>\<Path> using only a-z+0-9 for <paths>

Re: Advice for Windows non English users!

High,

 

The problem with national characters is not related to installation path's. I NEVER use them ANYWHERE

 

Its the "personal" type of path that Windows provide like for example "Local Settings" -> "Lokala Inställningar" that are used by "Chrome" and the simulator that messes things up. At least it did for me on Windows XP
