To deploy or not to deploy; that is the question…
My FEZ and I will be flying along nice and smooth, when all of a sudden, it enters what I call “stupid mode”.
After entering stupid mode, will I be able to deploy to my Domino? Maybe, maybe not… If it does deploy successfully, will I be able to debug it? Maybe, maybe not…
Various ‘diagnostic’ messages:
“Unable to communicate with device USB:USBizi” ----- Why not? What happened?
"… cannot attach debugger engine!" ----- Why not? What happened?
“Deployment error: failed to (re)connect debugger engine to debugging target. The debugging target and the debugger engine failed to initialize because of unspecified device errors. The debugger engine thread has terminated unexpectedly with error ‘Debugger engine could not attach to debugging target.’.” ----- Why? What happened? Which unspecified device error should I try to fix first?[/ul]
I usually just begin pushing F5 and ‘n’ (to answer the ‘deploy failed, continue?’ dialog) rapidly, until, maybe, eventually, sometimes, it snaps out of stupid mode.
I also intermingle reset buttom spamming amidst all of these attempts. One or more of the above usually ‘recovers’ from stupid mode, however how many and of which type(s) is newly randomized each time.
The only thing I haven’t tried (yet) is kicking/burning/smashing it. I belive this would ‘fix my problem’ by causing me to buy a different model that doesn’t include this feature.
