Compilation Error when trying to generate Windows Port with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

Posted by bertrandmercier on March 4, 2016

Hello,.

I'd like to compile FreeRTOS on Windows. So I followed the instructions of the "Try It Now, Using the Windows Port" section of page "Getting Started with Simple FreeRTOS Projects" (http://www.freertos.org/simple-freertos-demos.html).

I downloaded and setup Visual C++ 2010 Express. I downloaded an official FreeRTOS distribution : FreeRTOSV8.2.3 I opened the Win32.sln solution file in my .../FreeRTOS/Demo/WIN32-MSVC directory I set mainCREATESIMPLEBLINKYDEMOONLY of main.c, to 1

BUT when I compile ("générer" in french) the project, I got the following error :

1>C:Program Files (x86)MSBuildMicrosoft.Cppv4.0PlatformsWin32Microsoft.Cpp.Win32.Targets(511,5): error MSB8008: The Plateform Tool Set (v140) is not setup or not valid. Check that a supported PlatformToolset value is selected

What is a "Plateform Tool Set" ?

As you recommended, I read the comments at the top of main_blinky.c, before compiling, BUT I don't see information that can help me.

Thank you for your help

Are you sure it was the V8.2.3 distribution you downloaded, because you should not have any problems with that using MSVC 2010 Express (I just tried it). However, if you downloaded the V9.0.0rc1 distribution then the version of MSVC used has been updated to the 2015 Community Edition (still free for open source work or small teams).

The error you are getting is because of a mismatch between the compiler version selected in the project and the compiler version installed on your computer. You can still build using Visual Studio 2010 Express edition, but you will have to manually set the compiler version. See the highlighted option in the attached to see how to change it.

Thank you for your screenshot. Indeed, Because the RTOSdemo project was specified with the "v140" Plateform Tool Set, but in my C:Program Files (x86)MSBuildMicrosoft.Cppv4.0PlatformsWin32PlatformToolsets, I only have v100 and v90 directories. So I choosed for example "v100", and now it builds and I got a .exe. Thank you very much again.
