 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi all,

I have a problem that I just cannot solve and any help would be appreciated.... I searched the old forums but did not find anything similar to my situation.

I downloaded the Time Library from the Playground and just cannot get any sketches using the library to compile. I followed the installation instuctions and the libraries are installed in
C:\arduino\libraries\Time\DateStrings.cpp
C:\arduino\libraries\Time\Time.cpp
C:\arduino\libraries\Time\Time.h

When I verify one of the example sketches, the compile process runs for a few seconds and terminate with "Error compiling".
The same thing happens if I just take a simple sketch such as "Blink.pde" and include the time library as  #include <Time.h>

I tried putting the files
C:\arduino\libraries\Time\DateStrings.cpp
C:\arduino\libraries\Time\Time.cpp
C:\arduino\libraries\Time\Time.h

in any other directory then the compile just fails with an error such as
----------------<snip>-----------------------
"TimeSerial.cpp:12:20: error: Time.h: No such file or directory
TimeSerial:16: error: 'time_t' does not name a type
TimeSerial.cpp: In function 'void setup()':"
----------------<snip>-----------------------

So it appears that the Time library is where arduino IDE expects it to be.

The problem is that the compile fail even with just a simple #include <Time.h>
So Time.h itself must be problematic??

Any suggestions, ideas?
How can I get the IDE to be more verbose when compiling instead of just saying "Error compiling"?

Running Windows 7 and Arduino0022


Regards
Andre

RTFD (Datasheet in our case)

Try
Code:
#include "Time.h"
instead.

Good luck!

Found the problem!!!

Iolo System Mechanics' System Guard was preventing the sketches from compiling. Not sure why only sketches with the time.h library is a problem but a workaround was found and that's all that matters for now.
