collect2.exe: error: ld returned 255 exit status
Dear Microchip expert,
I am an EE on the hardware side. have some experience on TI code composer studio. totally new to XIDE.
I just redesigned an old board. with a firmware project compiled with MPLAB IDE v8.92.
I following the suggestion to convert it to XIDE V5.40. I spent days to install the IDE, compiler, Harmony and googled to eliminate all conflict Errors. finally, I got this ld error, which I don't think I can figure out.
attached is the output of the compile.
need suggestion to compile this project,
should I find an IDE V8.92? I think it may be easier, but I think Microchip recommends to use new tools.
should I create a new project step by step, or just import the legacy project to the new XIDE?
Have a great and safe holiday,
