Clion - Error Windows requires a prebuilt mconf-idf

Postby batFastard » Mon Nov 04, 2019 8:12 pm

Can anyone help me understand what CLion is needing? I am new to the esp32 and espressif in general.
Trying to get it running in on a ESP32 WROOM-32D in CLion.

I went thru the setup process, and I can get it to build from the command line. But when I setup a new esp32 project in CLion I get this error, and I can't find anyone else reporting this error.

Hi bF,

Did you run the Windows setup installer? This should install a prebuilt mconf-idf.exe binary, but you may need to configure the CLion project's PATH variable so that it can be found on the path.

(If using IDF on the command line, the export.bat script step takes care of this.)

I thought I went thru all of the installation instructions. Do you have a link for the windows installer, or to the directions for using it?

I see a mconf-idf.exe.

>but you may need to configure the CLion project's PATH variable so that it can be found on the path.

So I need to add the path to the mconf-idf.exe to my projects include path?

Thanks for the help
