I followed the instructions in this: https://eldontronics.wordpress.com/2018/02/11/lcd-module-connection-to-arduino-board-with-without-an-i2c-module/and followed the "Direct connection" section and I'm just trying to display "HelloWord" using the example under the liquidcrystal libraryI'm getting this error message: Arduino: 1.8.9 (Windows Store 188.8.131.52) (Windows 10), Board: "Arduino Nano, ATmega328P"WARNING: Category 'Display, Hangul' in library LiquidCrystal_I2C_Hangul is not valid.

OK, that does not tell too much. Usually it gives a hint about what is wrong.Next step is to get rid of the windows store version and install the normal IDE (current version 1.8.9) from https://www.arduino.cc/download_handler.php?f=/arduino-1.8.9-windows.exe.The windows store version can exhibit strange behaviour and this might be part of it.Question: is COM3 indeed the port that shows up in device manager when you connect the board to the PC?
