"Error generating HEX file" message
« on: May 19, 2013, 11:21:24 am »

My first test with Code::Block and Arduino Uno failed !
I have created a new project (Blink) and connected an Arduino Uno card.
The "Build target : Simulator release" works perfectly.

Then I select "Build target : Arduino Uno" and run the "Build and run" command.
The Arduino Build window is displayed.
A click on COM3 button and the message "Error generating HEX file" is displayed.

The COM3 port is perfectly detected by Windows 7 in the "Ports (COM and LTP)" tree. I am just working on Windows 7, through VMWare on a Mac, but the same connection works perfectly with Atmel Visual Studio 6.

What is wrong ?
Thanks for you help.

I have found this which makes me wonder now; why don't they report it to official project as plugin, or a custom tweak and share the credit? That kind of sucks I would say!
