Hi guys. I had issues with the security system on my computer, so I had to download the components of the AVR bundle separately. Although I downloaded the libraries, the software cannot find the libraries. Do you have any suggestions on what to do? Thank you.
Please email me at

It sounds like the library files are not properly installed. Have you tried following the instructions in the “Manual Installation” section of the Pololu AVR C/C++ Library User’s Guide? Can you post a screenshot showing the directory where you have the Pololu AVR C/C++ library files installed on your computer?

I just looked up “Manuel Installation” and everything seems to be in the right place.
This is what the error message looks like:

Here are some photos of my files:

Thanks so much for your help.

It looks like your main code does not properly reference the header files in the AVR C/C++ library. You need to specify the header file path along with the header file name. For example: #include <pololu/Pololu3pi.h>.

It also looks like you are trying to compile some code that is meant to be run in the Arduino IDE (e.g. Pololu3pi robot; and OrangutanAnalog analog;). If you want to use a line-following code example for the 3pi that works in Atmel Studio, see “C:\libpololu-avr\examples\atmega328p\3pi-linefollower” in the AVR C/C++ library.
