Set Project Folder Path in sublime
You need to set the path of the folder where you projects folder get stored , to set this path go to MavensMate->Setting’s->User and in that page change the path of the Workspace ,see below picture

“mm_workspace” : “F:\\Sublime Salesforce Projects”,

Here all my salesforce projects are in the F drive , so my path is like F:\\Sublime Salesforce Projects , if you don’t set the path you will probably get an error. Now your sublime text editor is fully configured for development in salesforce so now you can easily develop any visualforce page and apex classes, i hope you like my post if you have any queries related to this leave a comment below in the comment section and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and social networking pages.
