Before I post this question on the dreaded Microchip Forum, I would like to see if somebody else ran into this problem.

For the first time I would like to build a project in Microchip MPLAB V8.36 which has include files and library files in different directories. I have added the –I and –obj switches to the BoostC compiler. For the source files located outside the project directory, one needs to uncheck the “Inherit Global Settings” checkbox under the Build Options and hit the apply button, but there seems to be a bug there as the settings does not get saved by MPLAB and the Apply Button plays up - you need to check and uncheck the button to enable the Apply Button.

Is there a way to configure the setting somewhere else?


How do you setup a project for source files in multiple directories to compile successfully, it seem to be the root of the problem, rather than the above.


Editing the project.mcp file does not work either, the sub directories are ignored.
