Thanks. I'll try this, it's much simpler than my solution.

I had the same problem with the Arduino IDE 1.6.5. Here's what I did to get the CANBusTriple example to compile and upload on Windows 7:

  • Clone the repo in a folder like Downloads
  • Go to Downloads\CANBus-Triple\avr
  • Copy the example folder examples\CANBusTriple to your Arduino sketch folder (in my case Documents/Arduino)
  • Copy the libraries\CanBus and libraries\QueueArray folders to your Arduino libraries folder (in my case Documents/Arduino/libraries)
  • Copy the variants\canbustriple folder to your Arduino variants folder (for me C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\arduino\avr\variants)
  • Open boards.txt in a text editor and open C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\arduino\avr\boards.txt in a text editor using Open as System Administrator. Copy the text in the CANBus-Triple boards.txt into the top of the Arduino boards.txt file, save and exit.
  • Open the Arduino IDE 1.6.5 and then open the CANBusTriple sketch you saved in the Arduino sketch folder.
  • Click on Tools->Boards and pick "CANBus Triple", also pick the port.
  • Ctrl-R should successfully compile, and Ctrl-U should upload.

I believe the problem is in the platform.txt file in the repo.
Some of this info can be found on the Arduino playground under "Customizing the Arduino IDE".

Looks like your connection to CANBus Triple was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
