drive space error

Post by JayTor2112 » Mon Oct 08, 2018 11:00 pm

I have been using 4.0.0.rc1.2 for a long time without this issue, and all of a sudden i started getting this when trying to compile a database from MAME 202:

Error: execute procedure P_LOADDATAFILE(2)
Error: sort error
No free space found in temporary directories
operating system directive WriteFile failed
At procedure 'P_G_TRANSFERTGAMES' line: 13, col: 3
At procedure 'P_LOADDATAFILE' line: 342, col: 1

I have almost 20GB free on the drive that is set as my temporary drive. I just downloaded rc3, but it did the same thing. Any suggestions?

Hi.

You can try the following and see what happens:

In a command prompt, type cd %TEMP%. After a fresh reboot of the pc (so there will be no remnants of an installation), go to that folder with your favorite file manager and delete all files.

This is a database error, and database uses its own temporary folder.
Default location is pointed by the env veriable %TEMP%.
This can be changed in the config file Romcenter\firebird32\firebird.conf (search for 'temp' in the file)
