  1. Thanks, This did the job - I was almost sure I did run it as administrator since I had also a problem with preg.exe which was solved by running as admin, seems I forgot to run as admin for this one.
  2. Hi, Bought the Pro License (7.42). Ran preg.exe Selected the goodies option Entered the license info and got a message that the key is valid and was stored Then ran goodies.exe Got the following message: "Failed to extract file c:\programfiles(x86)\sourceboost\lib\novolib_pic18t6e4ts2.lib How do I get the goodies?
  3. Thanks, Was about to go through the 6.X installation path but decided to try again. Did the same procedure (administrator, command prompt) several times and suddenly on one of the occasions it worked. Have no idea what caused it to work (or caused it not to work on all the previous trials).
  4. Having a licensing problem and support has not yet responded to my mail (they used to reply within ~24 hours - not this time, and I am stuck) Had to replace my PC and I am trying to install version 7.3 Pro Ran Preg (as administrator as advised above) but still get an error message that I am using the Lite version) Any advice? Note: On the previous PC I had a 6.X version that was later upgraded to 7.X with an upgrade license. Is it possible that I need first to install an old 6.X version with its key and then install 7.3 with the new key?
  5. Worked. I must say I do not understand how I missed this command line parameter - I went through the documentation when i tried to solve this issue. After providing the proper paths I only had to change one register name that did not match my PIC ("baudcon1" instead of "baudctl")
  6. Thanks, I will look into this. Regarding NOVO I am not concerned because I am not so worried. This project should work also without NOVO. There is one #define for this in the project so if I comment it all code related to NOVO will (hopefully) be ignored.
  7. I made a totally new project but still get errors. example: In the main file (demo.c) there is #include "mb.h" however, mb.h is not in the same directory as demo.c so during compilation it says that this file cannot be found. Do I have to explicitly edit all files so that the included files are specified by their relative path to the calling file (or absolute path) or is there a way to define at the project level search paths for include files in the project even if they are scattered between various directories? Otherwise I guess my only option will be to move all files to the same directory.
  8. Thanks. Will try to either re-define the project or edit the project file
  9. I downloaded the Modbus example project, extracted it to a directory and opened the Sourceboost project file - All files seem to be listed in the project with their proper relative directories. Trying to compile - I get errors that the include files cannot be found. Any ideas what else I should configure? Edit - I assume that there should be somewhere to define search paths for the compiler but do not seem to find them
  10. Thanks,I do not use any of the libraries. I will explore it a bit.
  11. Thanks. If any of the developers is reading this I hope they will shed some light over this issue.
  12. Is there an expected behavior for a division by zero? Will the PC jump to a certain location? If not - is there a way that I can catch this exception so that I can handle this situation?
  13. Thanks. This solved the problem.
  14. Tried to get answer form support but no response (in previews years answers were given within 1-3 days). I have been using Sourceboost C for several years now together with MPLAB 8. I am trying to make a move to MPLAB X. I imported the project that I work on to MPLAB X and tried to compile it. Compilation works OK Linker fails. In the MPLAB 8 project tree I have the file libc.pic18.lib under the LIBRARY FILES folder I see that it is also listed in the project tree that was imported to MPLAB X When compiling in MPLAB X I get the following error: Failed to open:(x86)/SourceBoost7/Lib/libc.pic18.lib or C:\Program Files (x86)\SourceBoost7\lib/(x86)/SourceBoost7/Lib/libc.pic18.lib Any idea what is the problem and what should be done?
  15. Thank you. Then I guess I will use "if" statements in a certain part of my code - more cumbersome but will do what I need.
