Missing SoftwareSerial.h

by _phillip on Mon May 03, 2021 8:05 pm

I have been building sketches with this library for months with no problem whatsoever. Then today, for some reason, I cannot compile any sketch that includes that library because I get the following error msg:

"SoftwareSerial.h: No such file or directory."

I have researched this before asking for help here, but what I have read is that this lib has been replaced by NewSoftSerial.h, but then I read that this is obsolete as well. I'm chasing my tail.

To be clear, this lib is nowhere to be found one my version of Arduino IDE, which I just re-installed.

Any help with be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you.

Update!!
Now the SoftwareSerial lib has magically reappeared in the libraries.

I have no idea why this has happened???

If someone can shed some light on this that would be great.

Thanks!
