Hi there. You are trying to upload the frimware from within the compressed (ziped) file, which will not work.
You need to extract (un-zip) the firmware to it’s own folder before and then it will work.



Thanks. I will do that.

Hi guys, I tried the above and still get the error. I unzipped and saved the new folder onto my desktop. Im on an iMac, running High Sierra…thoughts?



Can you upload a screen-shot of the error?



I think this is a different code…sorry- still need any help you can afford me!

Check the port. Thescetch is ok and un-zipped, but there is no communication with the arduino.
Take a screen shot of _>tool _> port
