ESP8266 unable to load zip library

Hi,

Have dowloaded the zip ESP8266 library from Github using this link.
https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino

When I load it into Arduino v1.8.5 it gives the message , yet looking in the zip file they all seems to be there.

Tried many variations , including an older Arduino v1.6 but still get the same error !

Any suggestions whats wrong ??


Edit - just downloaded V1.88 for Windows installer and put on a different 'clean' pc and then tired to add the same .zip library but just got the same results ..?

Thanks, yes, did try it with the board connected but same results.

Always found Install from Zip folder to work fine, until today.

Seem to have loaded it in ok by using the Preferences and pasting the link in there and installing from the Boards manager.

That's what I was asking, if you haven't installed the board you can't compile programs for it as you don't have any of the tools installed (they get installed along with the board).

Thanks, getting my y fronts in a twist ( better not use the kn word, not pc correct !:nailbiting::D )

All seems to be working fine, it was to try out a basic esp8266 to PC routine, both of which I know nothing !

However following their write up was able to get it working fine, though plenty of work to do to expand it for wider use.
