[Solved] cycles particules in 2.7 does not work

this file was working not long ago and now in 2.7 it does not render anymore

can someone tell me how to modify it so it can render again
particulecycles1.blend (971 KB)

thanks

In the particles menu, under Render, switch the render type from None to Object. Add an object to use as your particles (say, an icosphere).

thanks for feedback
I found several other examples with same idea I guess
this file might be very old and was at the time working so I think there was a few updates done on particles since that time!

happy bl
