Error using ROS custom messages add-on

6 views (last 30 days)
Hi all,
I have just installed the ROS custom message add-on to the Robotics System Toolbox, and it seems to be broken - when I run rosgenmsg(folderpath), I get the error message:
"Undefined variable "hwconnectinstaller" or class "hwconnectinstaller.PackageInfo".
Error in robotics.ros.custommsg.internal.SupportPackage
Error in robotics.ros.custommsg.internal.setup.registerMessageCatalog (line 9) spPkg = robotics.ros.custommsg.internal.SupportPackage;
Error in rosgenmsg (line 33) robotics.ros.custommsg.internal.setup.registerMessageCatalog;"
I noticed another person with an identical problem commenting on the add-on 2 days ago. Does anyone know how to fix this please?
