When adding ModSensors 0.28.01 to a new project, I get the error: ValueError: Invalid simple block ‘^0.28.01’. I’ve included the full error text in the attached file. I’m getting this on multiple PCs, and other versions of MS do not give me this error.
I suspect this is a PlatformIO problem, but I’m posting here to see if others have seen it or can reproduce?
Create new PIO project
Add ModSensors library to the project from the PIO Registry: from PIO Home, click Libraries, search for ModularSensors and add it.
An error pane pops up with the error described. I’ll attach a screencap of the error pane too.
I can also generate the error by creating a new project and adding this line to platformio.ini and saving it:
lib_deps = envirodiy/EnviroDIY_ModularSensors@^0.28.01
I do *not* get the error if I instead specify ModularSensors using any of the following:
lib_deps = envirodiy/EnviroDIY_ModularSensors@^0.28
lib_deps = envirodiy/EnviroDIY_ModularSensors@0.27.8
lib_deps = envirodiy/EnviroDIY_ModularSensors
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
PIO Core 5.1.0
PIO Home 3.3.3
PIO IDE 2.3.0
(In the attached error message, there is also an error that I believe is unrelated: ‘Obsolete PIO Core, please remeove multiple PIO Cores from a system’. It began when I installed the -dev version of PIO Core and then uninstalled it after it didn’t solve the ‘ValueError’.)

I recently had this problem too!
The solution was to type:INI1lib_deps = envirodiy/EnviroDIY_ModularSensors@0.28.1
So, drop the “0”. Everything worked well, and it properly fetched v0.28.01.
I’m not sure why Sara added that 0 to this version, but I suspect is was for a reason, but unfortunately the PlatformIO library registry doesn’t like having that 0 there.

I suspected that was it! Confirmed that the .1 works for me as well.
I don’t believe 0.28.01 is valid, per semver.org: “Numeric identifiers MUST NOT include leading zeroes.”
Interestingly, sometimes PIO will fail silently when I use 0.28.01 via lib_deps (no error message), but it doesn’t install the lib dependencies at all. When I change it to 0.28.1, the dependencies install properly. I’ve reported on the PIO community because I think that the error handling could be improved.

Confirmed via the PIO forum: https://community.platformio.org/t/valueerror-invalid-simple-block-0-28-01/19759

I’m new to all this so still using ArduinoIDE for now. I’m getting a similar error when trying to change the address for a Meters CDT sensor. (One of the ones I recently purchased was recalled so I am trying to connect a different one).
The error reads “Invalid version ‘0.28.01’ for library in: C:\Users\lillyn\Documents\Arduino\libraries\EnviroDIY_ModularSensors”
Any suggestions on how to fix it?

I don’t use the Arduino IDE, but as a workaround, I’d try downloading a previous version of ModularSensors. Delete ModularSensors from your Arduino libraries folder, and grab a zip of the previous version, 0.27.8 from the Releases page on github and install it instead.

I’m so sorry about the bad version number! I’ll put out a new release to fix it!
@aufdenkape – The only reason was that I was thinking about the way Windows sorts files alphabetically where having the leading zero helps. That’s pretty meaningless for this, so it needs to be fixed.

Thanks for the suggestion Matt,
It didn’t work very well, here’s the new error message:

It shows you’ve got “Arduino Uno” selected as your board type. If you’re using a Mayfly, you need to change that in the “Tools–> Board” menu. Once you’ve done that, also make sure you’ve selected the right COM port. All of this is assuming you’ve already added the Mayfly board to the IDE as a supported board, using the instructions here: https://www.envirodiy.org/mayfly/software/

That worked! Thanks Shannon!
