An error has occured: please check your hardware. VsProjectFlavorCfg

This is another problem that I had ever since I use EMX.
Sometimes deployment doesn’t start and I get "An error has occured: please check your hardware"
and then

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Source: Microsoft.SPOT.Debugger.CorDebug
Stack :
at Microsoft.SPOT.Debugger.VsProjectFlavorCfg.Deploy() in c:\depot\current\CLIENT_V4_2\Framework\CorDebug\VsProjectFlavorCfg.cs:line 893

After that no matter what I do, I can’t deploy and I get this message.
The only solution is to create a new project and copy all data. This is very annoying, so to avoid that
I keep a zipped version of a project just in case this one bombs. I’ve seen on this forum that others have
also experienced this problem and there is no solution for it. Somehow project gets corrupted ?


@ SFR75 - If you get a project that reproduces it, you can send it to us to take a look at to see if we can find anything.

Where should I send it to ? Zipped it’s 690K…


@ SFR75 - Make sure you don’t send the compiled bin or obj folders, or any emulator bits. You can send it to support at ghi… referencing this thread.

@ SFR75 - We have received the project but unfortunately there wasn’t anything we could find. It did look like you were running an older 4.2 SDK and possibly VS2010. If you can I would recommend updating to at least the latest 4.2 SDK in and VS2013 since numerous things have been fixed in both our firmware and Microsoft’s part since the one you’re using.
