I'm not too sure, but have you created the makefile for the program?

hi pratheek,i said i dont know what a makefile is what it is used for ..i copied the makefile provided in the website and changed the settings to use external makefile.the build suceeded but i got this error message and no hex file was created!!!!

gcc plug-in: Error: Object file not found on expected location C:\c programs\mylcd\mylcd.elf
Make sure your makefile specifies the output .elf file as mylcd.elf

Only if you had followed the steps given in the previous tutorial to setup AVR-GCC + AVRStudio you should not have fallen in the pit for the first time !!!


Also I remember I deleted the same comment from by Website this morning!

I feel pity on those you can't even setup the tool chain

Did you forget to read the NOTE in the bottom of that page????????

I problem with u guys is that you DON'T KNOW WHAT R U DOING

I am sorry if i am little rude. I am tiered deleting such qustions from by Website the questions simply has no meaning and such guys can't be helped really
