      Description

      When trying to create a new project in a directory that does not exist, BlueJ generates the following misleading error:

      "A file or directory with this name already exists."

      For example, if I try to create the following project:

      c:\BlueJ\Lesson5\Program1

      when only the BlueJ directory exists, and not the Lesson5 directory, the above error confuses my students. An error that says a directory cannot be found would be more helpful.
