It looks like Photon is confused about your home directory. Photon apps like
pwm (the window manager) and PhAB store their settings under $HOME/.ph/. In
your case it thinks HOME is set to something like “C:/QNX630; C:/”.
When Photon starts on Windows, it will use the HOME environment variable if
it is set. If not, it uses HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH to create what it thinks
is a sane HOME.
Please check your environment variable settings using Control Panel →
System → Advanced → Environment Variables. If there is a HOME set, make
sure it is a single, valid-looking directory. Also check HOMEDRIVE and
HOMEPATH, which should be a drive letter with a colon, and a path beginning
with a backslash, respectively.
Or post the contents of these variables here and I will try to help.

When I try to create a new Photon application (Photon Appbuilder Project),
here is the contents of the Console for PhAB:
Starting font manager…
Starting Photon server…
Starting Window Manager…
copy from /cygdrive/c/QNX630/target/qnx6/usr/config/wm/wm.cfg to
/cygdrive/c/QNX630; C:/ failed
couldn’t open /cygdrive/c/QNX630; C:/ for read
The graphical PhAB popup error windows says:
Unable to make CONFIG directory (cygdrive/c/QNX630; C:/.ph)
It doesn’t matter if I select Yes or No to this message, PhABs is dead. I
uninstalled IDE4.0, then uninstalled Momentics 3.0 and reinstalled
3.0 (did not install IDE4.0) and I get the same error message.
