I'm trying to compile a simple program, and I'm getting a fatal error, creating workfile, can't create workfile. What's wrong?
This can be caused by a problem with the TMP directory. In uVision, pull down options, select environmental pathspecs. The default is to have a TMP directory off your root. Make sure you have a real TMP directory off your C directory, make sure it is a real directory that can be opened. Then set the pathspec to C:TMP. Also, make sure you don't have a file named TMP, or the compiler will get confused and give you that fatal error again.
Another cause is having over 256 temporary files. If you have a large number of temporary files, close any open applications and delete the remaining temporary files.
