fatal error: DualVNH5019MotorShield.h: No such file or directory

Hello I have an Arduino UNO and attempting to work with a VNH5019 motor driver carrier from Pololu.com. Loaded the zip file to folder, used Sketch – include in library – add zip. Library… Get this error message; I see the file in examples - “DualVNH5019MotorShield.h” Demo.
This is the error when I try to compile the sketch.

Thank You for any and all guidance.

Hello I have an Arduino UNO and attempting to work with a VNH5019 motor driver carrier from Pololu.com. Loaded the zip file to folder, used Sketch - include in library - add zip. Library... Get this error message; I see the file in examples - "DualVNH5019MotorShield.h" Demo.

Post a link to the actual site where you got the library AS A LINK!

https://github.com/pololu/dual-vnh5019-motor-shield This it? Thank You RJ

You should follow the directions on the Getting Started section of that page, rather than use the lame import function in the IDE.

I'd follow them, and try your code, but my laptop destroyed my tourbox in its mad rush to jump out onto the freeway on Tuesday. This one that I'm using now is not mine, and I don't have the Arduino software installed.

[u]I did follow the directions more than once before submitting my question.[/u]

[u]No offense but if you cannot run it on your system why bother with a reply? These tech sites are confusing enough for simple minded people like me. Thank you for wasting my time.[/u]

I replied because there are two sets of instructions. One involves using the Import Library menu item in the IDE. The other involves using common sense.

You said you followed the instructions that involved using the Import Library menu item.

If you don't want to try following the other instructions, fine. Wait until I get my new computer on Wednesday, and I'll follow them. When I confirm that they work (and I'm confident that they will), THEN you can follow them. But, follow them you will. Today or Thursday. Your choice.

OK I have tried up, down, sideways, the import library, dowloading the zip file and just down right copy and paste to no avail. So I will try other forums as well as you getting your puuter back. I have no problem with being wrong more than once a day! Again thank you for your effort and hope you get your machine up and running! RJ

Extract the attached file into your libraries folder.

DualVNH5019MotorShield.zip (3.12 KB)

did you actually unzip the library files ?

Isaac96: Extract the attached file into your libraries folder.

Thank You it worked unzipping from your link! Can not see a difference in any of the folders or code?

Well, the GitHub download is structured differently from the usual library structure. The GitHub download has an extra layer of directories, which I removed. Glad I could help! :D

Thank You, not good enough to see thi layer your talking about, willing to learn what to look for if your willing to teach.
