Thanks for your interest in the Intel® Edison Platform.
I appreciate all the information provided, I have found another thread with an issue similar to this one, and the user dcbrian has solved it, there is mentioned that Docker has a list of directories (Docker Prefs | File Sharing) on the host machine to which it permits itself to write, and an alternative workspace path cannot fall into that list, so it would be necessary to add your workspace path to that list. Please take a look at the thread: Failure to Generate ISS IoT Example Project for more details.
Hope this information helps.
I found a way how to share workspace on non-default location. In my case I used d:\workspace_iot
1. Stop default docker machine
docker-machine stop default
2. Run VirtualBox, open 'default' VM settings and add D:\ path to Shared Folders list:
3. Start default docker machine
docker-machine start default
4. Run studio and select d:\workspace_iot as workspace path.
It seems that Intel System Studio IoT has limitation on home directory path. It cannot include:
- non latin, localized characters
It should be noted in installation instructions as well as description how to use workspace in different location. It would save a week of time for me and probably other new users just to run hello-world on recently bought Edison board.
