Re: AVR Compiler issues

Hi Ben and Leigh For what it is worth......I checked the Flowcode 6 and AVR compiler on my DELL desktop computer this morning, when compiling a program to HEX it worked first time. So the problem was with my laptop which is a LENOVO Core 3i make and this was the problem all along and not your compil...

Re: AVR Compiler issues

Hi Ben I have created a new folder with the shortest path in C: with the name FC, saved the new TEST5.fcfx into this folder and it gives me exactly the same ERROR. The registry file NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation is still at 0. This is driving me nuts...... :D Could it be something to do with the oper...

Re: AVR Compiler issues

Hi Ben

I just opened the TEST4.msg file and saw that the compiler was actually searching for a TEST4.elf file and not the TEST4.fcfx file..!!

Why would the compiler change the file extension to ".elf" ?

Hi Ben Have received 2 TRX433S transceiver modules. Looking at the properties of the SRF component I see that the Tx and Rx pins are automatically selected according to the PIC chosen. Does this mean that the SDI pin of the radio module becomes the Rx pin and also the SDO the Tx?? Which is the ENABL...

433Mhz Radio Component

Hi guys

Before I get entangled with this 433Mhz RF data transfer project, can anyone shed some light as to which component is used for this? I seem to think from what I read that it is the "SRF" component but am not sure.

Thanks for your help.
