I am a newbie, this is my first post.
I have a library I got from github that is named hx711. When I downloaded that, there was no "download as a zip file" option there so I made a folder named /libraries/hx711 and downloaded all the files and folders into that. That hx711 library is here:
I have since found another library for the hx711 module here and that was downloaded as a * zip file:
The zip file extracted a folder named libraries/HX711-master. And when I started the IDE I got a warning that it could not be used because if the name it had been extracted to. I searched here and found numerous posts that say that I need to rename the folder to match the name of the HX711.h file that had been extracted from the zip file.
But since I already have a library folder named hx711 Windows (XP Pro) will not let me rename folder HX711-master to HX711.
What would be the best way to resolve this? I could guess at it (renaming the *.h file and then the folder for example) but I don't know what the consequences of that would be as far as using examples and things like that. And, as a newbie, I will admit to still being a little terrified about how "easy" it has been for me to get this far... :~
Thanks for any help,
