ERROR! Firmware version does not match managed code version!

Hi there,
I just found my Fez Raptor and although it’s been ages I thought it would be fun trying to get it up running.
I installed most software and made it work with VS2013.
But when I click F5 (Debug) I get the following error:

It seems like I need to update the firmware. From what I remember there was some sort of GUI-software for this but I cannot seem to find it. To be honest I don’t remember much of this so I am pretty much stuck.

Anyone?

Here’s the general netmf documentation.
http://docs.ghielectronics.com/software/netmf/downloads.html

Then you need firmware update instructions http://docs.ghielectronics.com/software/netmf/tutorials/firmware-update.html

You need to match your firmware version with the software installed on your PC - that may also require you to remove all references from your project and re-add them

Accidentally I found Fez Config and figured out how to update the firmware… I am now up and running. Feels great :slight_smile:
