I have tried several time to install this software. But even by premaking the directories or not it will not install.

I found the solution to the problem by accident.

you cannot run the command from the command window even as Administrator.

But if you double click with the mouse from the file manager it runs just fine.

Boy is that a surprise.


(bteeter_SW) #3

To run the “BuildShell” command just double click on it and a build window appears. You then type the “make clean all” and it will clean the build tree and the build the source tree to completion. The file needed to be will be in the LPC1768 directory and will be called main.bin.

Could this information be included in the compile instructions as a windows version that is noted in addition to the linux/mac versions as it took a while to figure this out.
