Issue ID




Package Manager: ENOENT: no such file or directory, mkdir




Attempting to create or open a project when there is a quote in the project path/name or in the UPM cache path causes the Package Manager to fail resolving packages with an error like the following:

ENOENT: no such file or directory, mkdir [path-to-temp-folder]

This happens notably when the OS user name or project name contains single-quote characters.

*Reproduction Steps*

1) Create a new project and name it "Bob's Project"

*Expected Result*

The project should be created and opened successfully.

*Actual Result*

The Editor displays a dialog during startup with Package Manager errors formatted like the above.

    Turns out that this problem occurs bec of the ' in the user folder name
    i solved this by making a new user without any special characters

    Please review the same issue, even after reinstalling it does not fix.

    Please review and submit the fix asap. I am unable to use any recent version to create a project.
