EDIT : This question concerns only fastrttps package.

Tried to install ROS2 from Binary. As soon as I download ROS2, extract it to C:\dev\ROS2 and call the local_setup.bat, run the demo nodes ros2 run demo_nodes_cpp talker , the program crashes with a window saying : A problem occured in the execution of the program. Please close it. The same happens for the python node as well.

Can anyone check it ?

I downloaded and The exact error is : the system cannot find the specified path. Even on double clicking the file @Dirk Thomas

I don't believe "double clicking" is what you are supposed to do with local_setup.bat.

@gvdhoorn : yes i know i am not supposed to do that. But after getting the same error multiple times, I was curious to know what happens if i manually try to run it by double clicking...and resulted in the same error message which was a bit strange.

Is the problem the same with Do you have OpenSplice installed? Please set the env var COLCON_TRACE=1 to get more information where it fails. You could also comment out the line @Echo off in the local_setup.bat file to show every command.

OpenSplice is installed, the variable OSPL_HOME is set correctly. COLCON_TRACE = 1 set (what is it exactly ?). @Echo off commented. Error : C:\WINDOWS\system32>if exist "C:\dev\ros2\share\ament_clang_format\local_setup.bat" call "C:\dev\ros2\share\ament_clang_format\local_setup.bat"

@Dirk Thomas : The same problem doesnt repeats if I download only fastrttps package but the moment I try to run a demo node, it crashes stating : A problem occured in the execution of the program. Please close it. Both for py and cpp node.
