  • Code in interrupts causing linker error {linker} invalid symbol type - for '$cb$rp'

    Hi, we are trying to add some interrupt code for a timer interrupt. Below is the error and the code we are trying to compile. This is using Windows 10 64 bit. Thanks

    #pragma interrupt_handler timer0_ovf_isr:iv_TIM0_OVF
    void timer0_ovf_isr(void)
    TCNT0 = 0x06; //reload counter value

    if (ms_timer>0) {

    Also, on another topic, the C compiler shows the version as 8.27 while we have 8.28 installed.

    What version are you using? I believe a similar bug has been fixed in the latest version.

      Thanks Richard. Yes, I am using the latest version but when it runs, it looks like the C compiler is still v8.27. Is it possible to just update the C compiler only? Thanks

      Below is the build log.

        Fergus, send me the project and I will check it out. As I recall, it has something to do with code compressor must be disabled for interrupt handlers (which I added), but maybe this is another instance.

          OK, thanks Richard. I have just emailed The project is very simple at this stage. Thanks

            Attached is the project. I have now tried on 3 computers - 2 with Windows 10 and one with Windows 7 and the error persists.

              I can duplicate the problem. Stay tuned.
