Hi, I tried to run cntk wih TIMIT data. But following error occurred

htkmlfreader: reading MLF file /q/nimalab/h1/jungsik/cntk/cntk/ExampleSetups/ASR /TIMIT/lib/mlf/TIMIT.train.align_cistate.mlf.cntk ...parse the line 436123
total 3696 entries
EXCEPTION occurred: mkdir: error creating intermediate directory tmp

Any idea about this error?

Thank you

it means a folder cannot be created. Either you specified an invalid folder name (e.g., d:\ may not exist on your computer) or you don't have permission to create the folder.

Thank you for reply,

I solved mkdir "tmp" problem above. But another error occurred.

I think this error corresponding to "ExpDir" in globals.config. My ExpDir is "cntk/cntk/Experiment" and "Experiment" folder located in directory "cntk/cntk/Experiment"
When I change ExpDir as "/q/nimalab/h1/jungsik/cntk/cntk/Experiment" which is fullpath then error changed
