Hi,
file must located here "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microchip\xc32\v1.30\pic32-libs\proc\32MX150F128B"
You probably used a newer version of microchip compiler and I remember a similar problem that I solved using version :
"xc32-v1.30-windows-installer"
and also a
"PIC32 Legacy Peripheral Libraries.zip" ( inside there is an exe )
and this too I downloaded it from the microchip site in the list of legacy versions.
since I find it among the installations I've used.

do you still use firewing?

i have tried several time and the most i can get it to do is flash an led.


when i tried to build for the arduinio tft module sample file i get one ore more errors have been reported during linking, muild source file in mplam to identify the cause......


its just so unfriendly god knows how any first time micro user would cope.

i think i'm going to have to give up on firewing which is annoying as i'd like it to be a success i have bought 2 firewing boards one for work and one that i personally bought a few years ago to support the cause.

please somone update the wiki to help new users.

Hi Richardb,

yes I still use it.
I use FW32 hardware and compiler for testing with its loader while for production I use the legendary PicKit 2 and XC32 compiler without using the IPE of MC ( which is just a waste of time in the real world ).
The IDE works very well without changes between the two compilers 32 except for the part of the fuses.

I use FW IDE (so basic) with PIC32 MC Toolsuite (that use XC32 compiler )
To go to 32MX795 use as a target board "ChipKIT Max32 " ;)

that's good to know but I just cant get it to work. maybe its a combination of windows 10 and compiler version numbers, but it soesnt seem to matter what i try something ends up stopping it from compiling fully.
