Whenever I compile, I receive errors complaining that board.txt cannot be found.  I'm running W7 64-bit on a Macbook Pro host.  Arduino preferences has my sketch folder as \\psf\Home\Documents\Arduino  The Arduino app finds this location just fine (and board.txt exists in the ..\hardware\SF32u4_boards-master folder)... but the compiler seems to struggle?

Indeed, only a warning, but it would be nice to have the compile window clean.  

Perhaps a bug?  Or, perhaps something I have missed in configuration?

First of all, this may be an Arduino warning.  Do you see the same warning when compiling a sketch in the Arduino IDE?

If the ACC4LV cannot find the boards.txt file, it will not let you compile.

For avr, the boards file should be at "\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\arduino\avr".

You are referring to SF32u4_boards-master, but those are SparkFun boards, which the ACC4LV does not support.  Have you added libs for those to your Arduino install?  It might have to do with that specifically.  On a clean Arduino 1.6.1 install you should not be getting this warning.

Arduino IDE doesn't report any warnings.  

As far as I can tell, only 1.6.1 is installed in my VM... and it was a clean install.  I did not intentionally add additional libs.

The Arduino board was purchased from SparkFun, but I don't believe it is hardware specific to SF.  (i.e., not the red boards they sell... this came in a standard Arduino box).  

It is strange that the Arduino IDE preferences are pointing to a Documents folder on my host computer via the VM -- but that may be how Parallels tells the guest OS to handle docs... perhaps via a regkey or system alias?  

I tried pointing the Arduino IDE to the guest OS ../Program Files (x86)/Arduino via Preferences in the IDE, but that didn't help (ACC4LV compiler still showed warnings).  

I then renamed the \\psf\Home\Documents\Arduino on the host OS and the warnings went away.  I have had Arduino IDEs installed on the host OS a few times in the past, perhaps this was vestigial?

Regardless, problem solved.  Just documenting here in the case someone else runs across this.

Thanks!

Ok, good to know.  We haven't come across this, however we have tested on similar VMs (although using VMWare Workstation) and haven't seen the Arduino sketchbook folder pointing to the host machine.  But that shouldn't matter as ACC4LV doesn't use the sketchbook path from the Arduino preferences anyways.  Did you get a chance to confirm that you were seeing the same warning in the Arduino IDE?  Just curious if it was completely isolated to the Arduino IDE as it seems to be.  In any case, that is good you were able to get rid of the warning and thanks for documenting it here.
