Cobra II New Project

I’ve got my shiny new Cobra II and installed NETMF 4.2 and all SDK files. However, I don’t see a “FEZ Cobra II Application” in my VS2010 template list when I create a new solution. Did I miss a basic step somewhere?

The only unusual thing I can think of is that I had NETMF 4.1 installed prior. Perhaps I should have uninstalled it first before installing 4.2?

Yes that can be done and it can also work as a pure NETMF device.

I don’t see a Gadgeteer template. I’ve attached a screenshot of what I do see.

Hmmm, I’m starting to wonder if it’s not something incredibly basic . . . .

Is it hiding under the “Gadgeteer” group in the left pane? :wink:

It s there in Gadgeteer group

Yeah I can see the Cobra II now under Gadgeteer Mainboards group.

What if I don’t want to use Gadgeteer and simply want to go pure NETMF?

Then just create pure Net Mf project :wink:

Hmm, you mean just create a Micro Framework Console Application and not use the potentially mythical “Cobra II Application” template that I’m looking for?

Yes. A template is just a “shortcut” that adds some references and add some initial code. You can start with netmf console project and add GHI/CobraII references when you need it.

Got it. Thanks. I was just afraid that the absence of a “Cobra II Application” template was an indication that my 4.2 installation got goofed up somehow. But I guess the template omission was intentional for this new version.
