Sim_vehicle.py build failed

Hi all,

When I’m trying to build SITL I get the error below.
I already tried the installation script using powershell and I also tried manual installation. Both are giving the same output. Is there anyone who knows how to solve this or has the same problem?

Thanks for the help.

Hi,
The log you posted states that git failed.

WafError: Command (’/usr/bin/git’, ‘submodule’, ‘status’, ‘–recursive’, ‘–’, ‘
/cygdrive/c/testmap/ardupilot/modules/gtest’) returned 1

To further debug this I would run the git command that failed and see what output comes from

$ git submodule status --recursive – /cygdrive/c/testmap/ardupilot/modules/gtest

I personally run SITL under Linux, so my setup does not really compare, but I have to invoke the simulate.py from within the Tools/autotest folder, while being in the ArduCopter folder, like

…/Tools/autotest/sim_vehicle.py

Maybe that helps.
