good evening and thanks for the reply!! That is the exact link I was following and I'm almost positive that I followed it word for word.
I gave up for now on my desk top and decided to download ROS onto my Mac, I got the talker and listener working so I believe it should be good to go. Now I have to get the gazebo stuff sorted. I also have another partition on the desktop with linux so I can use that as well but I really wanted to get the windows version working.
Does anyone maybe have a screenshot of their path so I can maybe see what is supposed to be in there related to ROS?
