Hi - would really appreciate it if someone could help me with this. I have the following issue. If I create a new project in PlatformIO everything works fine - all the files are generated, I can build the sketch and I can upload it to the board (I use the blink sketch and edit the interval to check). However, if a now create a second new project - everything the same, except the name - the console shows that c_cpp_properties.json has 5 errors (note: I haven’t touched the file itself). I can build the second project, and upload it without any errors, but nothing changes. I cannot, for example, change the blink speed. Any ideas would be welcome.
Could you share issues from console?
The “errors” are likely from the 5 comment lines in the
.json file, which is however not a problem if used by the PlatformIO extension.
That ‘error’ can be safely ignored, it has 0 effect on IntelliSense or thte build. In fact I found that if you open the
c_cpp_properties.json file, the parser kicks in and the errors go away. Again, they don’t affect anything else.
That’s the weird thing Max - the errors do go away and I can build and upload the sketch just fine, but it doesn’t seem to replace the sketch that’s already on the microcontroller (if, for example, the second sketch uses a blink interval of 500 millis, the LED still blinks at an interval of 1500 millis from the first sketch - it doesn’t seem the change). I wish I knew more!
Hey Ivan - thanks very much for responding. Do you mean a screenshot or something like that?
You need to use the project environment switcher to correctly select your active project. Otherwise you’re stuck with the old one.
Max, you are the man!! I can switch via the blue bar at the bottom of the screen which shows either Default (Test_1) or Default (Test_2), and it then does exactly what you’d expect. Many thanks, you are an absolute star!
