Dead Salvo Install

I have the following:
Win XP
SalvoPro 3.0.8 (9?) (PIC Chip)
Hi-Tech Pic C 7.87
MPLAB 5.20

I have installed Salvo but have not been able to get any of the demo's or tutorials to run. The tut projects seem to be corrupted. Just clicking on the *.c nodes causes MPLAB to crash. When I try to run them I get this error message "Select Build Tool not installed properly". I tried building a project from scratch adding but just adding 'OSInit()' gives me an "undefined identifier: OScTcbP (error)" error.

I have looked through the docs and on the net but I seem to be the only one with this problem...

The doc's for salvo indicate that it is compatiable with Hi-Tech and MPLAB but there is no min version number that I can find.

It sounds like one of your problems is that you haven't done Project...Install Language Tool... in MPLAB yet.

Hello.

I see two problems:

1) MPLAB v5.2. You'll need to run at least MPLAB v5.5 to get the projects to work (Microchip made substantial changes around MPLAB v5.5). You can download MPLAB v5.7x from Microchip's website -- but it will take a whiel to find it, as the main links take you to v6, which we don't yet have projects for (v6 and v5.x are completely different animals).

2) You are eligible for Salvo v3.1 -- please uninstall Salvo, download v3.1 and reinstall.

If this is a source-code build, then it sounds like either your salvocfg.h is wrong, or maybe you didn't include salvosrcmem.c as a node in your project.

I strongly suggest you upgrade to MPLAB v5.7x, and ensure that you can compile a simple "hello world" program with PICC v7.87. Then you should be able to build the Salvo tutorial projects without errors, and then create your own.

The Salvo objects are still dead but my old Pic projects are now also DOA.

The Hi-Tech language suite naming convention changed in MPLAB 5.5. There is a "toolfix.exe" in your new MPLAB directory that can convert your old projects to the new format.

No, it's not a version conflict, and you don't need to upgrade PICC to resolve this problem (though it's always a good idea to have the latest compiler).

The "Install Language Tool" UI is kind of weird; you have to select Language Suite (Hi-Tech PICC), then select Tool Name three times (compiler, assembler, linker), each time pointing to picc.exe, and choose "Command-line". Each time you change Tool Name, you'll get a dialog box asking to save; click yes.

1 - I found the "toolfix.exe" program. All it did was delete my pjt file. ??? Obviously something I did....

2 - I have been playing with the "Install Language Tool" dialog box from day one. No matter how I use it, it doesn't appear to like my version of Hi-Tech C, (v7.87). It ignores my selections.

3 - I am sure that MPLAB 5.5 & 5.7 and WinXP do work with Hi-Tech PICC v8.0. Unfortunately, I only have v7.87. I have ordered, downloaded and installed PICC v8.0. Unfortunately^2, Hi-Tech won't give me a new ser no. I have to wait for someone to ship me a CD from Australia.

4 - Is there an older version of Salvo that is compatible with PICC (7.87) and MPLAB 5.2? If not then I guess I'll skip the RTOS on this project, I can't wait for the CD from Australia.

Thanks for the help guys!!!

Your PICC 7.87 will work fine with any version of MPLAB from 5.00 to 6.12, there's really no problem there.

Can you create and build a trivial PICC project in MPLAB? I.e. "void main(void){}"

I found, downloaded and installed MPLAB 5.7. The Salvo objects are still dead but my old Pic projects are now also DOA. I keep getting the "Selected Build Tool not installed properly". I try to 'Install Language Tool' with the Hi-Tech PICC but it doesen't keep my selections. I assume it is a version conflict.

I downloaded the latest version of Hi-tech C but can not activate it. So, I will purchase the upgrade to Hi-Tech C and hopefully that will solve my problem.

Is there some type of chart that lists what version are compatible with each other? The Salvo RTOS sounds like a real neat system I just wish I was smart enough to use it.

Thanks again

Hello.

You need to solve the "Selected Build Tool not installed properly" problem first.

We are using MPLAB v5.5 and v5.7 in-house with PICC v8.00PL4 and v8.01PL3 without any problems -- but, you need to make sure you get all of the "MPLAB compatibility" files from the HI-TECH website in order to get it all to work properly.

Actually, come to think of it, all we did was install MPLAB v5.7 and then HT-PICC v8.01PL3 on an XP Pro machine recently and it worked fine from the get-go ...

The main problem is the MPLAB <-> PICC compatibility. The Salvo code is compatible with PICC v7.87 and higher, and the Salvo projects require MPLAB v5.5 or later.

HI-TECH can help you get the MPLAB stuff worked out -- also, they have a PICC forum that can help, too.

Update - Yes I can get PICC 7.87 to work with MPLAB 5.7! It took me awhile, sorry I'm slow. i had to redo the projects from scratch. I can almost get Salvo 3.1 to work. I am getting linking errors...

Thanks again for all the help!
