That's strange- I haven't seen that error before.

Does this happen when you click the "verify" button (the check mark in the upper left of the Arduino window)? A ask because Verify only compiles it. "Upload" compiles then tries to load.

If it's not compiling, try downloading a fresh clean copy of the Ringo Base Sketch and try to compile and/or load that. I wonder if it's a problem Arduino is having with all files in general. If it won't compile anything, you may try re-installing Arduino. You could also try posting on the official Arduino forum. If it's not compiling anything it sounds like a general problem with Arduino and wouldn't be Ringo specific.

Let me know what you come up with.

Hello Kelly,

Thanks for the update on this. I wonder if it's a permissions issue in the file system? It looks like the compiler is looking for something it can't see. I'm sorry I don't know the inner workings of the IDE to compiler toolchain. Looks like it's trying to access a temporary file created during the compile?

Back when I did a lot of work on Mac years ago I know we occasionally had to "restore file permissions" or something to that effect which would clear up misc issues in the OS. Not sure if you're on Mac or how you'd do this in the latest OS though. Just a thought.

Hi all,

Im having a lot of problems with Programmers Notepad. No matter what I try, there is always a "Cant find the file specified" error. I reinstalled PN; it didnt help. What should I do?
