I have just been trying to upload arduinoISP to my board, which is an arduino mega 2560. I used the following setup:
•ATtiny Pin 2 to Arduino Pin 52
•ATtiny Pin 1 to Arduino Pin 50
•ATtiny Pin 0 to Arduino Pin 51
•ATtiny Reset Pin to Arduino Pin 53
I then uploaded the ArduinoISP to my board, ( attiny85 w/arduino as ISP) and got this error message:
Third-party platform.txt does not define compiler.path. Please report this to the third-party hardware maintainer.
Build options changed, rebuilding all
Error while uploading: missing 'recipe.cpp.o.pattern' configuration parameter
I had expected it just to upload, no problems, so that I could then upload programs to my attiny85.
I am a relatively new programmer, any help would be really appreciated! I have also tried this with a capacitor with no success.
