Compilation failure

  • Hi - I've been using MySensors for a while and have a growing HA capability now with my own controller and also Home Assistant.
    I use NodeMCU ESP8266s for everything - basically, every node is a WiFi, MQTT Gateway. That all works fine.
    This weekend, I came to build another node but it will no longer compile. I have spent many hours tearing down and re-installing the Arduino IDE but it continues to fail with the same error:

    In file included from c:\Users\mark\Documents\Arduino\libraries\MySensors/MySensors.h:441,

    The above is the basic ESP8266 Gateway with no sensors and the RF removed - so as basic as it can be!

    I have tried all sorts of ways to hack it to bring the cont.h code in but I cannot get it to work.

    Any help would be really appreciated as this is really critical for my home network. If I can't sort this out I will have to completely rebuild the whole system using something else - and I'm not even sure what that might be! My controller is now a couple of thousand lines of code and I have some home-grown integrations to Shelly devices and a heat pump...

    Welcome to the forum @mtedds

    If you haven't already, downgrade the esp8266 board definitions to 2.6.2. See also

  • Wow - given the age of the most recent messages on here, I wondered if I would get a response.

    Many thanks for responding so quickly and my problem is resolved.

    [ Note I now also have PlatformIO installed and that compiled the sketch at the first attempt. I can't work out which version of the board it is using, as it uses different naming conventions, but I think it is the most recent. ]
