Hi All,
I am experiencing a strange problem when attempting to run (simulate) some C code. I suspect it may be related to my preferred development environment.

I have two machines.
1) iMac running OS X (Snow Leopard) with VMWare Fusion hosting Windows 7 x64. In the Windows host I am running Studio 4.18 SP2 (build 700) and WINAVR-20100110 (downloaded 9/2010).
2) Windows XP SP3 with Studio 4.18 SP2 (build 700) and WINAVR-20100110 (downloaded 9/2010).

My project builds on both OK. I can run (simulate) the code OK on XP.

On OS X/Windows 7 I get the following error:
Coordinator: None of the available object file readers can read the specified object file. Please check the format of the object file.
Error loading object file \\vmware-host\Shared Folders\Documents\data\avr\lcd2\default\lcd2.elf

Has anyone else seen this problem before? Is it related to Windows 7 x64 perhaps?

Thanks,
Steve

I'm running AVRStudtio 4.18 build 700 with WINAVR-20100110 on Win7 x64 without any problems. Simulator works fine also.

Try copying to a local directory on the VM client perhaps ..

Hi John,
good to hear from you, it has been a while...

Looking up through the thread I've just realised that I've been a member of this site for nearly 10 years. It's taken me 9 years to make my first post. I really do have to spend a little more time on my hobbies :)

Hi thygate,
you are an absolute star!

Moving the project to a local drive, C: in my case, solved the problem.

Thank you very, very much!

Cheers,
Steve
