    I tried running Evolution (2.6.2 & 2.8.2) on Windows XP home and got the following error:

    ** ERROR **: Resource problem creating
    'C:\DOCUME%1\Armand\LOCALS%1\Temp\orbit-Armand'
    aborting ...

    It seems that the file path should have read:
    'C:\DOCUME~1\Armand\LOCALS~1\Temp\orbit-Armand'

    (The tilde character instead of percentage character)

    What can I do to fix this? Is there already a fix?

      I'm having the same problem, I'm using 2.8.2 on Windows, OWA.

      Any help?

      Hi Frankie,

      Yes I can help - Go to Control Panel -> System.

      Under the advanced tab click on "Environment Variables". Make sure that the TMPDIR variable is correct. (Mine was 'C:\DOCUME%1\Armand\LOCALS%1\Temp\orbit-Armand'  instead of 'C:\DOCUME~1\Armand\LOCALS~1\Temp\orbit-Armand'. Just edit the variable to be correct. Voila!
