I have started with ROS on Windows today, and when I follow the tutorial and execute

rospack find roscpp

I get back the following:

[rospack] Error: package 'roscpp' not found

How can I install roscpp on Windows?

Hi there,

Just to verify - Every time you open a command window, you'll need to call c:\opt\ros\melodic\x64\setup.bat.

If the above does not solve the problem, could you post your chocolatey log? It is located c:\programdata\chocolatey\logs\chocolatey.log.

We have seen cases where rosdep times out , and trying to determine how widespread that is.

actually I think there is not an installation problem: A few hours before the command worked, but at a later time it stopped working. I have attached the call to the shortcut, so yes it has been executed.

Could you post the output of set ros in the command window. It should look something like this: ROS_DISTRO=melodic







(Although we are switching localhost to for performance reasons)
