Mapping power PMAC variables Failed
#1
With IDE 1.5.0.21, when I try to build a project, I get the dialog:

Mapping power PMAC variables Failed. Do you wish to continue the build process.

The output window shows:
=================
Please wait while mapping Power PMAC variables.
Could not open the error file
=================

I'm running the IDE as a user 'lroot' with 'Administrator' privs. The 'lroot' user owns all the directories under 'Documents', and has 'Effective Permissions' to access C:\Program Files (x86)\Delta Tau Systems Inc\

What is the full pathname for the error file that the IDE can not open?

Any idea on how to fix this?

(Please don't ask me to upgrade to a later IDE - later versions of the IDE seem to insist on later versions of the firmware, and later versions of the firmware don't support switching an axis between jog mode and 2 axis movements, which our current application uses.)

(Answering my own question . . .)
Summary - my project directory was missing the 'Log' subdirectory.

I ran the SysInternals ProcessMonitor
(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysin...96645.aspx)
and discovered the IDE was trying to open <proj_dir>/Log/pp_error.log .
Once I created the "Log" subdirectory, and "Configuration\pp_disable.txt"
my builds started working again.
