After setting up and following the course, get an error compiling for board DOIT ESP32 DEVKITVI. I have a HiLetgo® ESP-WROOM-32 ESP32 ESP-32S but its not listed. What now?
Can you try using the “ESP32 Dev Module” name option in the Boards?
What’s the error that you see?
But which error message do you see? Can you copy and paste the exact message?
Here’s the error message:
Arduino: 1.8.5 (Windows 7), Board: “ESP32 Dev Module, Default, QIO, 80MHz, 4MB (32Mb), 921600, None”
exec: “C:\\Users\\Kent\\Documents\\Arduino\\hardware\\espressif\\esp32/tools/xtensa-esp32-elf/bin/xtensa-esp32-elf-g++”: file does not exist
Error compiling for board ESP32 Dev Module.
This report would have more information with
“Show verbose output during compilation”
option enabled in File -> Preferences.
Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, but I’ve been receiving a high volume of emails and I wasn’t able to keep up with everything.
- Do you have any anti-virus activated or something that might be blocking running 3rd party code?
- Can you delete the entire espressif folder and start from the beginning with the new installation instructions?
The new installation instructions show how to identify the right location to install the software https://rntlab.com/module-1/installing-the-esp32-board-in-arduino-ide-windows-instructions/
That error means that your ESP32 add-on wasn’t fully downloaded or running the get.exe file failed to run properly…
