When I try to compile a program, including an empty shell, I get the following error:

avr-g++: CreateProcess: No such file or directory

I've looked in other threads but none of the fixes I've found seem to apply.

I'm using Arduino-0022 on Windows 7 x64
The most common fix I found in the other threads was removing GCC_EXEC_PREFIX from the environment variables, but it is not there.

Any help is appreciated.

Does this directory exist...

{YourArduinoRoot}\arduino-0022\hardware\tools\avr\bin

Are there a bunch of EXEs in that directory?

Heru_Ur

Yes.  The folder exists and avr-g++.exe is there.

Any GNU software listed on your PATH environment variable?

Heru_Ur

The PATH variable value reads as follows.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microchip\mplabc30\v3.25\bin;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2010a\runtime\win64;C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2010a\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\Microchip\MPLAB C32 Suite\bin

No matter how hard I stare at my screen, I just can't seem to see what's in those directories.  Until my remote reading skills improve, you will have to make an effort.

Heru_Ur

Ok.  The short answer is no.

Only paths for matlab, mplab, and a few I don't recognize beginning with %SystemRoot%

Does your Arduino root directory contain spaces or special characters?

Heru_Ur

Nope.  That was the first thing I checked for.

Try this...
- Open a command-shell
- Navigate to "{YourArduinoRoot}\arduino-0022\hardware\tools\avr\bin"
- Run "avr-g++.exe"

On my computer the output is...
"avr-g++.exe: no input files"


Heru_Ur

Does the same on mine.
avr-g++: no input files

Well, I don't know what the problem was, but it was corrected by re-downloading the IDE.

I'm glad to know you have it working and thank you for the follow-up.
