Getting error when trying to build & deploy code on Arduino. Error "Spaces in build-related folder paths can cause the build process to fail"

16 views (last 30 days)
This is the error that I am getting. It might be due to the fact that my Windows Username has a space 'Zain Khan'. I am not sure how to resolve this error.
The model that I am trying to deploy is stored in C:\ProgramData\MATLAB\SupportPackages\R2022a\3P.instrset\aekrev2projectfiles.instrset and the toolboxes being used are installed in C:\Program Files\MATLAB\MATLAB Add-Ons\Toolboxe.

Hi Mohammad Zainullah Khan,
You are right, the error is due to the space in your username.
The second line in the log clarifies that:
Warning: Unable to remove spaces from file path 'C:/Users/Zain Khan/DOCUME~1/MATLAB/R2022a/ARDUIN~1/ARDUIN~1/FASTER~1'. Spaces in build-related folder paths can cause the build process to fail. For more information, see Build Process Support for Folder Names with Spaces or Special Characters.
This is because the static libraries are generated in the following folder by default:
C:\Users\<username>\Documents\MATLAB\<MATLAB Version>\ArduinoStaticLibrary
Since your username has a space, you are seeing the error.
To fix, this change the environment variable 'ARDUINO_STATIC_LIB_PATH' which will force the creation of static libraries in some other folder.
setenv('ARDUINO_STATIC_LIB_PATH',<new path for static libraries>)
For example:
setenv('ARDUINO_STATIC_LIB_PATH','C:\ProgramData\MATLAB\StaticLibs')
Hope this helps!

Thank you so much! This worked!
I spent countless hours trying to figure it out on my own before I posted here. I should have posted earlier but its all well that ends well.
