The project has now been created. It will not compile because it does not know where the common header files of the Microchip Framework are located.

  • Choose Project>Build Options>Project.
  • In the directories tab, choose the Include Search Path.
  • Add a New path - Browse to find the include folder (<Installation Folder> \pic32_solutions\Microchip\Include)
  • Add a New path - type a period '.' (this will search the project folder)
  • Click Apply and then OK
