Hi. I just got my nerdkit yesterday. I did everything that the guide told me to do and I got up to compiling a program. I know that I have to compile the make file by going into the command prompt window, find it, and type in "make", but the problem is when I type in cd<desktop it says access is denied. When I make any similar comand, it always says "access denied" Please help me! Thanks!

I just figured it out, but now I have another problem. I changed the make file and com port, I have it plugged in, but when I type make in the command line in the folder, it gives me an error. what exactly do I type? just make? Or make Makefile? I'm sort of confused...

You should be able to just type make and press enter. Can you post the error you are getting?

I changed part of my program today & tried to compile it and it gave me an error as well. As soon as I reverted back to the previous version, it started compiling again. All I added was a variable & one computation. Not sure why it didn't work. Could that be part of the problem?

You need to bring in the whole code directory to where you are making your modifications. The reason it won't compile is because you need to have the files from the directory "libnerdkits" one level above where your code is located.

How did you solve the first problem..."Access is denied" in the command prompt window. I have Windows 7 64bit.

Thanks

I'm using Windows 7 now, but I think this will work on vista.

go to Start -> accessories -> Command Prompt

or do a search for "Command Prompt" there in the start.

Now don't open it yet just right click "Command Prompt" and click on "Run as administrator" and that should let you do what you want.

Running as Admin didn't work, I am still getting "Access is Denied". Is there a security setting I need to change somewhere? Please help. thanks

I just read another post and my error was typing "<" after the cd command. Silly mistake. Thanks for your help.
