New version ( error

I got error

Arduino: 1.6.4 (Windows 8.1), Board: “NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP-12E Module), 80 MHz, 115200, 4M (3M SPIFFS)”

In file included from test.ino:3:0:
H:\Development\Development\Notes\Text\Ardiuno\libraries\Blynk\src/BlynkSimpleEsp8266.h:18:21: fatal error: version.h: No such file or directory
#include <version.h>
compilation terminated.
Error compiling.

This report would have more information with
“Show verbose output during compilation”
enabled in File > Preferences.

tell us what version number of the ESP core you are using.

Your path seems to be using a combo of Windows and Linus directory designators… (forward slash instead of backslash) I think you have installed something incorrectly??

The latest version is 1.8.7.
Apart from that, have a look here:


Download blynk release library latest from, Then Unzip & copy the content from library folder in your preference folder. Now it will run without any hesitation.

But, with an app version Arduino: 1.6.4 he’ll have any sort of problems, anyhown.
@javacomtech: it’s best pratice to use a “clean” up-to-date version of the IDE along with the latest lib version.
