What is the process to resolve the following warning in Project Creator 2.0 within ModusToolbox 3,

"WARNING:"wifi_helper" "main" requires "wcm" "latest-v2.X" which is not present in the manifest data."?

This warning appears after selecting "New Application", before selecting a BSP or Kit.

This warning and the explanation seem odd to me. Do you have any environment variables set or is there anything you have set in the ~/.modustoolbox/manifest.loc file?

wifi_helper is mentioned here: https://iotexpert.com/category/tools/anycloud/

I see this is another issue for you using IOT_Expert stuff with the current version of ModusToolbox 3.0.

In ModusToolbox 3.0, I opened Project Creator in stand-alone mode (without the Eclipse IDE) created the Wi-Fi_Scan application for the CY8CPROTO-062-4343W BSP in a brand-new folder. Then I opened the Library Manager to look at the installed libraries. There is no wcm; it is spelled out as wifi-connection-manager, and it is version 3.0.0 release. I looked on Infineon GitHub, and I do not see wcm there either. 

Sadly, the creator of the IOT Expert site is no longer an employee with Infineon. I don't know if he maintains the material or not. Sorry I cannot be of more help with this.

Christopher,

Thanks for taking a look at this.

Deleting the "manifest.loc" file under Users/<account>/.modustoolbox, resolved the issue.

For the record, the warning occurred when opening Project Creator. It doesn't seem to cause any issues.

The "manifest.loc" had one line

https://github.com/iotexpert/mtb2-iotexpert-manifests/raw/master/iotexpert-super-manifest.xml

Deleting the manifest.loc file resolved the warning.

P.S. This issue is unrelated to the IoT Expert examples. I am, however, still awaiting the new Alan Hawse to step into Infineon's Lime LIght.

Greg, thanks for the update.
