  1. This subject as discussed many years ago before the times of MPLAB X, and as far as I understand did not work properly. But now sourceboost compiler is an "approved" MPLAB x compiler, so before I try experimenting maybe someone already did this and can comment: If I have several projects -each in its own directory I have several c and h files which are common to al projects and I want them to be located in their own directory (and maintain only one copy of them, as opposed to have them in each of the projects directory and copy-paste files each time I make a change in them).
  2. The answer to the above question is very important for me. I have been using the paid version of BoostC for the last 14 years or so at work for commercial projects, including some recently new ones. Not that I really need improvements, but do need to know if there will still be someone backing this product, or should I begin thinking about switching to a different compiler.
  3. Is there a way to mark a code section and have it commented out n "one click" I know it is possible to /* at the begining and and then */ at the end but what I am looking for is a "one click" way to insert // at the beginning of each line in the section (an then removing it) This is a feature found in all IDEs that I know, so I either missed how to do this or it does not exist in the SB IDE editor.
  4. OK - my big mistake. Although I have been using SB more than 10 years and installed it several times over this period I simply forgot to press the "integrate" button after selecting the MPLAB folder.
  5. I have integrated successfully into MPLAB-X and have been working for several months. Due to a problem with a PICKIT3 that I am trying to resolve i installed also MPLAB 8.92 (It worked for me over there but for some reason does not work with X) The problem is that SB is not integrating and I cannot set up the toolsuite location for it. What I already did: I reinstalled SB with specification of the MPLAB directory. Result - SB does not appear in the list of tools I saw that the files were not copied so copies them to the Core/MTS directory. Result - still not sh
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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).
  9. 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?
  10. 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")
  11. 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.
  12. 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 sam
  13. Thanks. Will try to either re-define the project or edit the project file
  14. 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
  15. Thanks,I do not use any of the libraries. I will explore it a bit.
