Khalid,

I hope that version 3.02 of the compiler works for you, but I would not bet on it. Its a very strange problem that you have run into.

What is going on, it seems, is that there is a license server. For some reason, it thinks you have the purchased version of the compiler, but that you do not have a license.

What it is supposed to do, is see that you have an evaluation copy, and then it does not need a license.

License servers are tempermental...

By the way, what operating system are you using? Windows XP?

I think your best bet is going to be getting help from Microchip.

I sent a note out to the team that is working with me, asking for help, but no one had any ideas.

Good luck and best regards,
Bill

Khalid,
For some reason, the compiler is not picking up a project symbol definition. But you can work around it. Assuming you have a red board, go into the file options.h. Near the top, you will find the lines:


#ifdef ConfigRed
#include "ConfigRed.h"
#endif

#ifdef ConfigGreen
#include "ConfigGreen.h"
#endif

Change them to:


//#ifdef ConfigRed
#include "ConfigRed.h"
//#endif

#ifdef ConfigGreen
#include "ConfigGreen.h"
#endif

This will cause the ConfigRed.h file to be included.

Normally, this should happen automatically, because the symbol ConfigRed is defined in the build options for the red project, but for some reason, the compiler is not picking it up.

Best regards,
Bill

Khalid,

By the way, what did you do to get the license error to go away? I am very curious, since this is the first time this error has been reported, I would like to know how to fix it.

Khalid,

I suggest that you try microchip's technical support:

http://support.microchip.com/scripts/slxweb.dll/external?name=webticketcust

They have answered me in the past, but as soon as I said I was using an Olimex ICD2, they told me they could not help me.

Hi Khalid,

Regarding the error message that you saw about a problem with the license server, its the same message that you saw the last time, and then it went away, and now its back again.

But you know, you can legitimately contact microchip support and they should be able to help you, because its not an ICD2 issue, its purely a software issue. If you run the compiler without the ICD2 connected, you will get the same error message, so you can contact microchip and tell them you are having trouble with their compiler.

In fact the error message says to contact support.microchip.com, so I think you should do that.

Khalid,

Also, you are the only person who has reported a license server error message with the microchip compiler, so I don't have any experience with it to help you. That's why I was hoping that you would remember what you did to fix it last time. ;-)
