ich just tried the example from this page: [url][/url]

But the compiler just says attachCoreTimerService was not declared in this scope.

I am jusing the newest Version 0.23

Does anyone have an idea?

Thank you

The example on that page compiles fine if you copy and paste. I am using mpide-0023-linux32-20120715-test

Are you sure you have a ChipKit board selected, and not an Arduino one?

Thats weird,

I had the mpide-0023-windows-20111221 and it didnt worked.

Then I used the one you suggested, but for Windows ;)


It worked :P

But its weird that the newer Version cant compile it :?

Thank you very much!

The core timer service is a new feature added to the system, and hadn't yet been thought of at the time of the 20111221 release. I don't remember the first version where it appeared, but it was around the 20120715-test build. It is in all test builds since 0715, and will be in all future releases.
