Sensebender Gateway GatewayW5100 Sketch Compile Issue - No sam.h file

  • Hi, just fired up my newly purchased Sensebender GW and connected to my PC running Windows 10. Shows up as a USB Serial Device.

    Installed in Arduino IDE 1.6.7 the following
    Arduino SAMD Boards 32-bits ARM Cortex-M0+ vers 1.6.14
    MySensors SAMD Boards vers 1.0.5

    When I try to compile the stock standard GatewayW5100 sketch I get

    C:\Users\David\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\arduino\hardware\samd\1.6.14\cores\arduino/Arduino.h:48:17: fatal error: sam.h: No such file or directory.

    I have noticed that in the Sensebender GW webpage I read that
    "be aware that Mysensors board files 1.0.4, is only compatible up to Arduino SAMD 1.6.11." I have tried downgrading to 1.04 and 1.6.11 but this did not help.

    Can someone point me in the right direction please?

    TIA Dave

    Have you tried a newer Ide version? And look in board manager if new definitions are there

  • Thanks gohan, Reloaded Arduino IDE 1.8.2 and it now compiles without any problems and have it reporting temp and humidity to Domoticz. The reason I downgraded the Arduino IDE version was I had an Arduino Uno setup as a gateway but it would constantly disconnect and the solution I found on the forum was to use an earlier IDE version.

    Other times it is just enough to downgrade avr boards leaving IDE to newest version.
