Using tar to access files

I need to access configurations files the for web server I am porting to

I create a tar archive , that contains the required folders and files ,
convert it into c source using rtems-bin2c , ( a header file and a c source
) and link them with my project.

In the init, I call

sc = Untar_FromMemory((void *)TARFILE_START, (size_t)TARFILE_SIZE);

where TARFILE_START is the macro with the name of the array , TARFILE_SIZE
is the size of the array.

But when I run the program, I get errors of the form

"Untar: failed to create file <folder>/<filename>"

for all the files in the tar archive (there are about 10 files, 10 errors).

There are no build errors, and since my application recognizes files
present in the tar archive, I think possibly I am missing to initialize

Help would be really appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Sujay Raj
