    Couldn't create project directory

    This is probably a noob question but this is my first time programming and I'm picking this up for fun. I followed the tutorial or "getting started" portion of this website and when i try to create a new project, after naming it, i try to create it but I keep on getting this error message saying "Couldn't create project directory. I'm really confused! help please!

    What IDE are you using?
    1. Get rid of gets(). Never ever ever use it again. Replace it with fgets() and use that instead.
    2. Get rid of void main and replace it with int main(void) and return 0 at the end of the function.
    3. Get rid of conio.h and other antiquated DOS crap headers.
    4. Don't cast the return value of malloc, even if you always always always make sure that stdlib.h is included.

    Make sure the place you're trying to create the project directory is somewhere you can write to (so you don't want it in C:\temp, or C:\windows, etc.)
