hi all , when I tried to run rake db:bootstrap for Spree, I got a weird
error



rake aborted!

Mysql::Error: Can't create/write to file
'C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\#sql_1b0_0.MYI' (Errcode: 13): SHOW FIELDS FROM
`option_values_variants`

rake aborted!

Invalid escape character syntax: /C:\mydirectory\app\Rakefile/


any ideas?

BTW, obvious but I'm using XP

Thanks

Maged

you got a problem with slashes / backslashes as directory separators.
unix uses a slash (and that is what rake expects) while windows uses
backslashes (which are interpreted as escape-characters).
i'm not on windows, so i can't really tell you what to do to fix it,
but i hope i could point you into the right direction to google a
solution.
