    Hey there, I'm having troubles creating a project.
    When I go to file > new > project > I get the error message:


    Error

    Could not change to the Templates directory
    (C:\Users\Oni\Desktop\Templates)...


    OK

    and if I click OK, I get the new project screen but it is blank.

    I tried uninstalling Dev-C++ and installing it again, that allowed me to
    create a project ONCE. If at any time I closed the project, even without
    saving, I'd get the template directory error again.

    I'd love to get this fixed ASAP, any and all help is greatly appreciated!

    1) follow the instructions listed under the topic "Please Read Before
    Posting.....".
    2) what version of Dev-C++ are you installing ?
    3) what operating system version ?
    4) what is the (full) path you are installing Dev to ?
    5) what is the (full) path to your project directory ?

    All of these factors can (may) have an effect on creating a project.
    Don't know why that is, but, Dev C++ is funny that way.

    Although I used Dev-c++ for many years and was very satisfied, I have changed to CodeBlocks. Sadly, but true, it works far better, while still feeling at home. If you want to continue though, check your file system permissions.... Also, try to run as administrator

    Have you tried Orwell Dev-C++? It is a fork of the original Dev-C++ and the latest version is 5.3.0.3, released November 2012.

    Does it behave the same way ?

    Cheers !
