Can't create new Standardlone Project !!! The file already exists!!!

Hello, 


I have installed MPLAB X IDE v5.40 and XC8 Compiler v2.20. I just want to create a new project. But every time, I wanted to create new and assign Target Location, whatever directoty I chose, always said !The file D:\Test (whatever the directoty) already exists. 
 
Kindly need help.

Try creating a folder in the root of drive D, and saving your project inside that folder.
i.e. don't try to save it directly in the root of D.
 

I also post at: PicForum

Problem fixed. Uninstalled MPLAB X IDE including all kind of setting staff. After re-install working perfectly.

It might had happened due to harmony v2 setup which actually needs a directoty for Project Folder. Somehow, it was causing problem. I will find its permanent solution and share if I can. 

Thanks

Hi Guys,

Do you have any idea, why can't I create New Project with MPLAB X IDE v5.40?
- I bought two Curiosity Nano PIC18F47Q10 boards in April.
- None of them worked with former MPLAB X versions: "Failed to initialize tool" message popped up every time.
- I gave up a ticket.
- No useful answer, just same: try with newer versions of MPLABX. I used 5.30 and 5.35 (after patched).
- Now, I have got message that in version 5.40 it is fine. The guy who is handling my case sent me the project he created.
- I cannot create New Project, the process stucks after clicking "Finish". Then there are options only for "Back, Cancel, and Help". Hm, Thx a lot!
- Then notification in red shows Already exist... etc.
- I attach my PrintScreen images, I took those images step-by-step: ... #01, ...#02, etc.
- Btw, I cannot open the project the Support Team Member sent me.
- I checked XC8 version: O.K.!

Does anybody have any idea? 
Has anybody faced such phenomenon?
 
By me it was the first time I gave a try for MCHP Curiosity Boards, but they seem a failure to me, or is that MPLAB (especially with MPLAB X IDE v5.40)?
 
Thank you a lot,
Mátyás

Hi,
Which HPC curiosity board do you have (there are 2 revisions) ?
I tried to use PIC18F47Q43 on the old one but it is not supported...After exchanging with tech support I was confirmed that it is only supported on rev2. this will be visible on MPLAB X 5.45 which is expected in august (I have seen this on another thread on this forum).
MPLAB X v5.40 is the first 64bits version and also uses OpenJava instead of Oracle Java which proably lead to several issues sad: sad
Regards

For support make sure to check first here : http://microchipdeveloper.com
There are hundreds of PIC, AVR, SAM...which one do YOU use ?

Hi RISC,

I have two of same type of boards(PIC18F47Q10-CuriosityNANO):
- Common on both PCB: A08-2972 Rev2 (2019)
- On sticker #01: A09-3246/03, SN:1800003907
- On sticker #02: A09-3246/03, SN:1800003438
 
I don't give more try for MPLABX v5.40, it has become more and more messy...
But still waiting for reply from TechSupport...
Best regards,
Mátyás
