Remote build issue, CMake throws error "Cannot generate into"

Answered

Hi,

 

After i set up the remote toolchains, I tried reloading cmake but it throws the following error,

"Cannot generate into C:\Users\cmng\CLionProjects\orderbook\cmake-build-debug-remote-kgrpmw008
Specified path is not a directory

Please either delete it manually or select another generation directory

[Failed to reload]"

Please help! Thanks

Suddenly it stopped working again.

I deleted all the toolchains and reconfigured, then created a new project.

Still it doesn't work. Please help.
