Building Issues: RTOSdemo for PIC18F

Posted by Roean v Ellewee on September 30, 2010
Hi there.

Again, I'm new to this whole rtos concepts. I'm using MPLAB v8.56, trying to build the rtosdemo for the PIC18F (18F452 to be exact.)

The following error is found:
Debug build of project `C:\FreeRTOS\Demo\PIC18_MPLAB\rtosdemo1.mcp' started.
Preprocessor symbol `__DEBUG' is defined.

Clean: Deleting intermediary and output files.
Clean: Deleted file "C:\FreeRTOS\Demo\PIC18_MPLAB\rtosdemo1.mcs".
Clean: Done.
Couldn't locate build tool. Check tool locations.
Debug build of project `C:\FreeRTOS\Demo\PIC18_MPLAB\rtosdemo1.mcp' failed.
Preprocessor symbol `__DEBUG' is defined.

What am I doing wrong? What must I do to rectify this?
Appreciate any answer

That sounds like you don't have MPLAB installed right. Did you install the C compiler too? (It isn't part of the base MPLAB download). The other possibility is that I think MPLAB stores tool location in the individual project, so if you are grabbing a sample project, they may need to be updated if your install didn't put them in the standard places.

Thank you, Richard

I finally got it working. I downloaded the C-compiler for 18F, installed it and it works. Feeling a bit stupid, but anyhow, that's how one learn.
