I have created an ogre application using the ogreappwizard. When I try to compile the solution I get an error saying that Parameter "basePath" cannot be a relative path..

I followed all of the instructions, and have tried reinstalling both the Ogre SDK and the appwizard.

I am losing my head here. What is going on?

I have run into this issue myself. There seems to be a bug in the OgreAppWizard.

Until the bug is resolved, the fix is quite simple:

Go to Project->Properties->Configuration Properties->Debugging

Then simply remove the leading "../" from the path for Command and Working Directory.
