Unable to compile locally, Reload yields same results. openocd@0.10.0-particle.1, False


#1

I have been having issues getting Workbench up and running. I used it a while back with success, but now nothing will compile locally. Cloud compile works. Audit is posted below. I have reinstalled VS Code several time. Also completed several environment reloads.

Issues I can see:
“openocd@0.10.0-particle.1” = False
“buildtools@1.0.3” = False
Local compile options says “Building” but never completes. Terminal does not show anything past

> Executing task in folder eFFF: make -f 'C:\Users\rmiller\.particle\toolchains\buildscripts\1.5.1\Makefile' compile-user <

I think I may have some permissions errors, but can not tell what it is trying to run.

Audit:

if it’s been a while, you are probably hitting:

you should be able to just run the Particle: Reset Environment command to fix things up :+1:


#3

Thank you for the reply m_m, unfortunately I have attempted that several times as well.

I originally was running into a problem where my system was unable to launch some of the background applications because they required “run as administrator”. Up to that point all of the toolchains were returning “TRUE”. After fixing that problem I started running into the issue I have posted. Still stumped.


#4

ah, ok. :thinking: hmmm…

can you try connecting a Particle device via USB, entering DFU mode, then running the following in powershell:

C:\Users\rmiller\.particle\toolchains\buildtools\1.0.3\bin\dfu-util.exe --list 

…and share the info it returns?

likewise, let’s try openocd

C:\Users\rmiller\.particle\toolchains\openocd\0.10.0-particle.1\bin\openocd.exe --help

in both cases i would expect to see an error of some type come back. i’m hoping that’ll shed some light on what is going on :+1:


#5

See my findings below. Note that I have these .exe files set as “run as admin”, however when I run them in VS code or CMD, they close immediately. I captured these after running CMD “as admin”. Not sure if it actually has done anything differently. Not that familiar with this level of code, especially in Windows.

Okay, I feel a little dumb. I can get the audit results to return good results now that I set VS Code to “Run as Admin”. I still get an exit code 1 when trying to compile locally.

:thinking: hm… ok, so we’re well into “weird permissions issues” territory it seems.

i’ll confess i’m a bit foggy on what exactly might be happening but fwiw, i just created a new, non-admin account on my test windows 10 box here and was able to install Particle Workbench + VSCode, create a project, and compile my app without issue. after installing, the Particle: Audit Environment command showed all dependencies as ok: true.

maybe there’s a way to audit your user’s system privileges to identify what special constraints exist?


#8

I tend to agree. I appreciate you taking the time to lend a hand. This is a work machine, so I plan to hand it over to IT to figure out. Either permissions or one of the many, out of date, patched together anti-…virus, mal-ware, spy ware, etc programs that does nothing but prevent everything from working.


#9

ok, sounds good. if you learn anything interesting, please share :pray:
