Topic: Build.target confusion (Read 762 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi all,
A while ago I pieced together a Arduino sketch and it worked well. I bought a new laptop recently and installed the version of Arduino I originally wrote the sketch on (0017).
Now when I try to compile the sketch I get the following error:

Code: [Select]
java.io.IOException: Target platform: "null" not found.
Make sure that "build.target" in the
preferences file points to a subdirectory of
at processing.app.debug.Target.<init>(Target.java:49)
at processing.app.Editor$43.run(Editor.java:1751)
at java.awt.event.InvocationEvent.dispatch(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEvent(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpOneEventForFilters(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForFilter(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForHierarchy(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.run(Unknown Source)

When I go to the preferences file there is no build.target. There is however a
Code: [Select]
# temporary build path, normally this goes into the default
# "temp" folder for that platform (as defined by java)
# but this can be used to set a specific file in case of problems

and a
Code: [Select]
# may be useful when attempting to debug the preprocessor

Pls help, I'm really lost!


I should add that is not an error as such that comes up, however it gets stuck compiling and that above feedback shows.


Why don't you use the latest version of the IDE?


I wanted to confirm everything was working in the IDE I had written the code in, before updating.


I have now updated to 1.0.1. just need to update the old libraries and the code. Busy day tomorrow!
