I am trying to get through the temp sensor demo and am at the point where you first compile code (step 10c, pg 43). I found the correct USB port, edited the Makefile program, and found the directory in cmd. However, when I type "make" I get this error:

make: *** NO rule to make target 'intialload.c', needed by 'intialload.hex'. Stop.

I cannot figure out how to get this to work. Does anyone know what I need to do?

Instead of using the cmd line I use PN (programers notepad) that came with the Nerdkits down load. Use TOOLS then MAKE ALL. This has been the most trouble free for me...

edwardhl, I believe you are on the wrong path!!

Where is the libnerdkits folder relative to your project folder?

They both have to be under the Code folder!
