Re: USB problems with windows 10

If it's been running fine for your but now your are getting multiple reports of the same problem, it could be a win10 issue. I've seen similar problems in the past (but not HID related) where the rules behind a driver implementation are tightened up - showing up a problem that was there from the beg...

Re: USB problems with windows 10

I haven't personally seen any issues with HID and win10 (yet). It's unusual for HID to give problems (unlike CDC which nearly always has a driver issue). When you say connection issues, is it connecting then dropping off? Or does it sometimes fail to connect completely? It could possibly be a descri...

Re: interested in new device support?

I'm not aware of problems with my email.

However, do what Jerry suggests. #

PM me on this board and include your Swordfish registration number. I can then get the latest compiler build to you...

Re: Problem with the path to the Library folder

You will see an *.idf file if you have COFF enabled. For example:

myProgram.bas

will generate

myProgram.idf

in the same folder as your *.bas file

Re: Problem with the path to the Library folder

It's located in the same folder as your main program *.bas file. Ensure that:

View...Compile and Program Options
"Generate debugger COFF file"

is enabled

Re: Problem with the path to the Library folder

The priority is:

(1) folder that contains the main program you are compiling

then

(2) swordfish user library

then

(3) swordfish standard library

it has always been like that - no changes have been made to include lookup priorities

Re: UMC Build Error

You will need to install a version of MPLAB (it's still available from the microchip site to download). The builder will not work with MPLABX.

Re: Problem with the path to the Library folder

You have described the correct behaviour for an install > c:\users\g\documents\swordfish\userlibrary still did not exist An operating system may have multiple accounts. So when the application is first run it creates a unique copy of certain directories to ensure that if any changes are made by an i...

Re: Problem with the path to the Library folder

You could try enabling "VIEW...EDITOR OPTIONS" -> "Display Full Filename in Application Title Bar" to see where any file is located.

Re: Forum zip files

I think it's something along the lines of what bitfogav was saying. Maybe it was to do with the move to phpBB3 - I really don't know. Assuming for a moment it is. And the files are stored as ascii and not binary, you may have a very small chance of converting ascii to binary with some utility *provi...

Re: Forum zip files

The change over to phpBB3 happened much earlier. I think 2014. Certainly your idea of a FTP transfer that incorrectly auto detected ASCII rather than binary would fit *but* I haven't touched the files directory at all using any kind of FTP process.

Re: Forum zip files

I do not know what has happened. phpBB stores attachments under a directory called "files". It seems that a number of these files have become corrupted. My rolling backup only goes back to May 2020. When I try and restore from then, the files are still damaged. I have no idea what has caused this. I...

Re: Default Variable Assignment

When I originally designed Swordfish, the aim was to be as "familiar" to some other basics - where you didn't need an explicit procedure "main" entry point - like PROTON or PICBASIC. In hindsight, I agree with you. Having an explicit entry point would have made things a lot easier. Particularly with...
