3d printer compiling error

Hello. Trying to set up my first 3d printer and getting this compiling error. Any help would be appreciated. I have attached some files that I think the issue is coming from (if this needs to be in another thread please let me know)

It looks like you have a corrupted file - see

 /**

in the error. Try re-downloading everything? Or open the file which has the error (g26_mesh_validation etc) and see if it looks normal.

THey look “normal” too me when I open in notepad. No strange characters you pointed out above. But I didn’t know a lot about this. (didn’t know I’d be getting into this stuff when I bought it :confused: )

G26_Mesh_Validation_Tool.cpp (35.4 KB)

MarlinConfig.h (1.27 KB)

That looks totally normal. The error has /** at the end, maybe some corruption around the comment sections?
Try taking all the comments out and re-compiling.

Sorry to be an annoying noob but....how much is considered "comments"?

Comments are preceded by // (comment) or, for multi-line comments, surrounded by /* (comment) */
Try the attached version - I removed the comments.

Do a search for 'arduino stray /302'. It's a fairly common issue.
