Notepad ++ Compile issue

Post by Aly-Tek »

Hi Folks, Happy new year :)

My issue is;

"C:\Users\steph\Desktop\Extron Upgrades\cncm\compile.cmd" "Centroid-Mill-Standard-OAK-ATC-Umbrella-Aly-Tek-r5.src"
Process started (PID=24892) >>>

C:\Program Files\Notepad++>cd \cncm

C:\cncm>mpucomp.exe "Centroid-Mill-Standard-OAK-ATC-Umbrella-Aly-Tek-r5.src" mpu.plc
'mpucomp.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\cncm>pause

I've uninstalled Notepad++ and reinstalled it and I get the same response :( I've searched in here for answers I've re-read and watched the Youtube Video numerous times and I'm lost :(

Please help,
TIA
Stephen
Many Thanks
Stephen @ Aly-Tek :D

Was that a Cmd prompt or a PowerShell prompt? If PowerShell, try using .\mpucomp.exe You can also try the full path to mpucomp and see if that works.

I'm sorry Tom i've no idea what you are talking about :( All I can say is I press F6 and that's what I get. I followed the Notepad++ Install And TB to the letter. I've checked all the position and symbols in all the areas more than twice. I've doubled checked the zip files for compiling and still nothing :(

Now it seems I can't even skip this step and load it to trial it as the PLC Installer won't even find the file :x
Many Thanks

Suggest you check your C:\cncm folder and see if it actually contains the file called mpucomp.exe as your message could indicate it's missing. If it is missing, you will need to find the location where it is and then as Tom says, you can add its path to your command.

Hope this helps

This message in your output;

indicates that Windows could not find the file mpucomp.exe. As Nigelo says, first confirm that the file exists in the C:\CNCM directory. If not, then you need to locate the file and copy it there. After doing this, if you still get the same error message, try adding a ".\" (without the quotes) in front of the filename in your compile.cmd file like this: .\mpucomp.exe %1 mpu.plc

I would guess it cannot find c:\cncm\compile.cmd. Is it in the cncm directory?

See viewtopic.php?f=64&t=4196&p=33895#p33895 to learn how to configure Windows so that it shows you the full name of each file, instead of hiding extensions.
