I'm having difficulty being able to use WICED 6.2 - it fails to build.

Any ideas I can try to narrow down the issue would be appreciated.

I've narrowed the issue down to the simplest Make Target, snip.scan, which works on WICED 6.1 and fails on WICED 6.2 for me.

Following is the error when running a Make Target that comes already setup = snip.scan-BCM943362WCD4

20:44:22 **** Build of configuration Default for project 43xxx_Wi-Fi ****

I'm running Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1

Intel Core i7-6600U @ 2.6GHz, 8GB RAM

MS Outlook is the only other program running

I tried uninstalling and re-installing WICED 6.2 several times.

I also uninstalled all other versions of WICED then reinstalled WICED 6.1

I have been running projects using WICED 6.1 and previously WICED 5.2 without issue.

zhez,

Thank you for the suggestion to check GNU.

I tried to look for the GNU files, but Microsoft's File Explorer wouldn't let me search. I realized then something was wrong with the core programs on my PC. That made me think a similar issue may be happening with WICED. I’m not clear why the issue only occurred with WICED 6.2.

Key things done to my computer that now allow WICED to work include:

  1. Updated BIOS - An updated BIOS is most likely what fixed my issues with WICED 6.2
  2. Re-Indexed by entire drive - Indexing has been running for 6 hours – not done yet. It seems to run faster if I’m not using the computer. There's a chance WICED 6.2 couldn't find the GNU files it needed due to the drive being incorrectly indexed.

Thank you again for your suggestions. WICED 6.2 is now working flawlessly!

Hi  user_455868498

    after you install 6.2 sdk , do you have a check about if there missed some files compare to 6.1 install?

I used to meet the problems which has no any source code in the directory ,   often re-install to solve the issue.

and if all source code and directory are correct installed and extracted ,  All I can think is we upgrade the GNU tools in 6.2 release,

assume there has a compatible issue with your environment,  just for a try Can you copy the old gnu to the 6.2 for a try ?
