VEX IQ Download error

Today I updated VEXOS to version 2.1.5 and updated VEXCode IQ Blocks to version 1.0.9-45 on my Win 10 PC. I now get the error message below when I attempt to download any program to the robot brain.

Error compiling your program.
‘make’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
make process closed with exit code : 1

Any suggestions to correct this would be appreciated.

This is usually caused by security settings on the computer preventing the command line compiler tools (make.exe) from running.

Is this a school computer or are you running any aggressive antivirus / malware protection that may be blocking the compiler from running?

Apparently it was a “have you tried turning it off and back on again” issue…
Rebooting the PC was the solution.

Sometimes simply closing VEX IQ blocks and reopening it worked for me to fix this error.
