Illegal characters in path when deploying to sharepoint 2010

This strange error occurs when deploying our sharepoint project to sharepoint 2010.This error caused by a character set problem on path of users folder.

My path contains a turkish character of “ı” .



Change your tmp path from
c:\Documents and settings\[My illegal charecters in here]\Local settings\Temp
c:\temp folder

You can change temp folders by right click my computer -> properties -> advanced system settings -> Envoriments Variables


VisualStudio2010 -> tools -> options -> Projects & Solutions
change that paths to another path that not include your user account name which is contain
s illegal characters.

Happy programming…
