Error Help SimpleIDE

Hello,

I recently installed the Simple IDE on Windows 10. I also installed the latest drivers and libraries. However, I am getting this error:

Project Directory: C:/Users/nicko/Documents/SimpleIDE/My Projects/

I cannot figure out how to fix it or cant find any info online. If you could help I would greatly appreciate it. I am using a Propeller Activity Board by the way.

​Thanks,

nick

  • Looks like your program compiled OK but could not be downloaded to the propeller. Is the Propeller connected to comm4?

  • Welcome to the forums!

    What adapter are you using to program the Propeller?

    I have found this error when the COM Port is set to the default of COM1 rather than the correct port. Seems somehow the error being returned is incorrect. It appears as a file error when it is actually a "No Propeller Chip Found" error. I have reported this internally.

  • I just had a similar situation while testing the Parallax WiFi SIM module, I am using SimpleIDE 1.1.0 on a Windows 7 system.

    In my case, in the build status, it shows the wifi port is connected, but I get the two download ERRORS. I guess it should of showed its normal cannot find Propeller chip notification.

    Had the same problem after upgrading to win 1.1.0, but only on the WX. It seemed to download ok on my old AB.
    W10 on my Surface or my older ASUS i3 both ID the WX correctly in Connected Devices, but give it a com3 or 5, or nothing at all. Strange.
    Hook up the old AB and Com4 pops up and things work. I think I'll back off to the 1.0.2 and the older FTDI see what happens.... The WX did work with that.
    Fun huh?

  • Finally got my SURFACE to respond to a download...(finally had the time). If you download the appropriate driver, you have to go to Device Manager, right click on the COM port while the AB is plugged in and update the driver directly.
    If you download and use the instruction guide for your system, it's a big help. It works.

    How does it do for you on another OS on the same Computer? That is on Linux, Darwin, BSD, Haiku OS, AROS, FreeDOS, AtheOS, MiNIX or whatever other modern OS you happen to run on that computer.
    PASM The simplest programming language for the propeller.
    Low Power for everything, max average whole house draw for a day is 2.4KW/hour total:
    That is 400 watts per hour to produce for the 6 good power hours (minimum in late December/early January) from solar, now how to use less.

    Can you imagine that it is annoying when you constantly hear that Linux prayers?

    Can you imagine people do WANT and LIKE to use windows?

    Or is that not allowed in your world?

    Sad

    EDIT: and listing Minix as a moder OS compaired to Windows, shows that you are just a religious anti windows preacher and have no clue what you are talking about.
    Just hilarious.

  • msrobots,
    Can you imagine that it is annoying when you constantly hear that Linux prayers?
    I guess it's a bother.

    Rather like ones mother nagging all the time: "Stop smoking all those cigarettes and weed. Don't drink beer. Eat something other than junk food everyday. Don't hang around with those bad girls....."

    It's annoying and one knows mother is right. But one continues anyway.

    We only nag because we care for you. It's for your own good. Like you mum.
    Can you imagine people do WANT and LIKE to use windows?
    Actually no.

    Nobody wakes up in the morning thinking "Woopie, what a great day, I get to use Windows again". Most Windows users I know complain about it all the time, then ask me to fix it.
    ...listing Minix as a moder OS compaired to Windows
    Yeah. And FreeDOS for goodness sake.
  • Nobody wakes up in the morning thinking "Woopie, what a great day, I get to use Windows again

    Actually, that is not true. There are Windows fans out there. I know a couple and they can tell you every last bit about a given Windows OS.

    I myself love 7. Once that one got the polish, I've enjoyed it. I don't want nor need a 10 machine yet. I know it won't be like 7 is. And 7 is a great OS. It's on my Lenovo laptop, and that is likely to be true for the life of that machine, which is looking to be 8 years.

    I'm in year 5 now. The thing just sings most days.

    Can tell you, I love that machine. It's fast, I've got the OS and goodies cloned onto a spare SSD, and I just don't get a lot of trouble.

    I've got some super expensive CAD on it, and 7 has been the best for that work. Linux does not even come close BTW.

    Best part is I can do everything on this machine. Boot it, and go. Love that big. .

    Here is one example:

    Working on insane assembly, electromechanical system from an aircraft. I could use 3D stereo on this one, so I get a cable, connect to my plasma 3DTV and fire it all up. Had to run a brief depth calibration, and then go.

    Just worked. The last OS that even came close was SGI IRIX. I did mooch cursors, pointers and sounds for some nostalgia. The bright red cursor is cool.

    Doing this in Linux requires a PhD. I have, and let's just say I won't again.

    I will run that one, until I can't. Great OS, software, hardware combo. Best I've ever had, and I've run high end modeling on everything.

    Point here is this happens. Happens a lot. To so many people, it's just a tool, and when it works like a good tool to them, it happens.

    I can't do everything on a Linux machine. I don't love that, but can. And when I do, it's a different use case

    Another example happens to be the RasPi. Got a great image all setup for a dedicated use. I'm a huge fan of purpose built environments. Can boot it, do the thing, never have trouble.

    One more happens to be Linux Mint on an ancient Think Pad. 1 GB RAM. It's amazing to see such an old machine be relevant today. I use it for some basics and it's got auto VPN, some basic development tools on it, and an Office suite. Works great as a family, stay out of trouble computer.

    Happens all the time man. Really, it does.

    We really should be helping people get what a lot of us got, and that is tools that just work.

    No joke.
