Eclipse - *** IDF_PATH cannot contain colons....

Postby PaikLabs » Wed Dec 19, 2018 8:30 am

Hello all,

I tried to setup a ESP32 IDF but the eclipse will not work with the IDF_PATH settings.
I followed all the getting starting instructions at the espressif getting started homepage.
But I am not successful with using the Eclipse.

I have exactly same problem like this issue:
https://github.com/espressif/esp-idf/issues/1580

make flash within msys32 is OK
build from eclipse FAILS with *** IDF_PATH cannot contain colons. If overriding IDF_PATH on Windows.....

I have been dealing with it for three days. :-/
Win7 64-b, ESP-IDF V3.1.1, Eclipse Neon, Mars,Juno
I have tryed setup on two PCs.
I have tryed ESP32 C/C++ Development Tools from market place
...no success :-/

What have I missed? Please Help.

Soooo... did you try replacing the c:/msys32/home/kryda/esp/esp-idf in the IDF_PATH define with /c/msys32/home/kryda/esp/esp-idf , as the error message suggests?

yes i tried it :-)

But Eclipse cannot find python.exe with /c/ in IDF_PATH:
11:02:34 **** Incremental Build of configuration Default for project HelloWorld ****
python /c/msys32/home/kryda/esp/esp-idf/tools/windows/eclipse_make.py all
C:\msys32\mingw32\bin\python.exe: can't open file '/c/msys32/home/kryda/esp/esp-idf/tools/windows/eclipse_make.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory


All Get Started documents mention C:/ as correct IDF_PATH for windows users.

When I run make in msys32.exe -> *.bin is generated OK
When I run eclipse_make.py in msys32.exe -> FAIL with error

OK. I solved the problem.

There is something wrong in Get started for stable version 3.1.1
https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp ... le-windows

Get started for latest version work for me. There is some differences in eclipse setup.
I am able to build with Eclipse, finaly.

Happy coding PK
