My copy of Mbed studio has stopped working in the weirdest of ways and now I cannot get working again. On Wednesday I opened the app as usual and it flashed up to say there was a new version which I declined to install.
On Thursday I booted my laptop, went to run Studio, and the .exe had completely vanished! The program directories were still there, but no .exe. It wasn’t in my trash box and I hadn’t done anything with it.
So, I downloaded the latest version, ran the installer and this failed, unable to write the un-installer.exe. I tried to run the un-installer that was still present in the program folders and this refused to run.
Next, I deleted all the original program folders and ran the new installer again and this time it installed successfully. On running studio, I then got “Caching MBed OS to speed up your development workflow” which stuck at 19% and went no further.
Finally I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and this time the Caching MBed worked and I was able to run studio. Hurrah I thought, back in business, but no! When I compile my program I get:
Project build failed: Request build failed with message: EPERM: operation not permitted, open ‘c:\Documents\MBED\Interface_Test_6\BUILD.mbedignore’
I’ve tried deleting “BUILD.mbedignore” but this doesn’t make any difference. Any ideas?
