In MPLAB got to Project-->Build Configuration--UNcheck Debug, CHECK Release, then "build all" again. You should also find a DEBUG/RELEASE drop down nearly under "configure"

Also, if you get a build tool not found error- you need to change your Language Tool Locations-- DO NOT trust your eyes- C:\Program Files (x86)\Microchip\ is obviously different than C:\Program Files\Microchip\ (which will be the project default as it was built on XP) - actually BROWSE to the locations under Set Language Defaults and Apply them, then save the project, clean and build all again.

After Checking "Release" which unchecks "Debug" and doing Project > build all, I get the same result:
Release build of project `C:\Users\User\Documents\DSP-610\DSP-610 18F Baseline Code\DSP-610 PIC18.mcp' started.

Clean: Deleting intermediary and output files.
Clean: Done.
Couldn't locate build tool. Check tool locations.

Release build of project `C:\Users\User\Documents\DSP-610\DSP-610 18F Baseline Code\DSP-610 PIC18.mcp' failed.

Everything is in the c:\Programs (x86)\Microchip\MPLAB IDE directory. There are 24 sub directories with one of them being tools. There are 13 directories under tools so it looks to me like everything is in the Program Files (x86) directory.

I struggle with this every time I use a new PIC and have to update the compiler.

I can see this from project to project- took me a couple minutes to realize I had the location for the linker sans (x86)... check and BROWSE to the locations for EACH item required. I am certain you will find one location is wrong.

It's not clear to me where all of these different tools are even suppose to be installed. I am assuming (I know this is foolish) that they all want to be in the Program (x86) Microchip directory and as near as I can tell, that is where they are. When you install the MPLAB IDE software or the 2 compiliers, I never get a screen where I can even tell it where to install. I would hope that the Microchip software folks would make this MUCH easier as for inexperienced people like myself have enough to absorb without having to deal with installation issues like this. I have about had it. Anyone want to buy a semi working DSP-610 that is slightly off freq???

Hi Not sure if it will help but I eliminated the build failed due to tools not being located by reinstalling the C18 software using "mplabc18-v3.43-windows-eval-installer.exe" I downloaded at microchip today. But then am still unable to get a hex file that looks correct and the map file has references to drive D and versions of C18 I do not have but that are listed in Jim's map file I downloaded from google. Also said C18 version is only fully good for 60days. Forgot to add I am using XP. WD0BWQ
