This is TOTALLY unacceptable. I’ve read posts about people having problems with this or that ONCE it’s working, but getting it working in the first place is rediculous. Here’s as much info I can give you about the process (one of many, btw). I also want to mention that I have rebooted after every step AND applied Windows Updates each time.
Uninstalled everything relating to .net, .netmf 4.1 and .netmf 4.1 and 4.2
Installed .net framework 4.5
3 Installed VS Studio Express (as per YOUR WEBSITE and installation software) which says specifically says VS2012. In the process I got an error message from Microsoft complaining that VS2012 is NOT compatible with Windows 7. I applied the patch they recommended.
Installed dotNet 4.3 SDK (RTM).
Installed NETMF and Gadgeteer Package 2013 (R2)
First of all, where do I set the static IP address for the board. I can’t ping it from a command window. That’s not you’re site anywhere. Second, how do I get my ethernet module running. It’s run in the past, so it had the CORECT IP address. HUH! YOUR software never gave me a chance to set it. Somewhere in your older version I had to change the switched on the board. Not now I guess.’
This is all per YOUR INSTRUCTIONS on the website!!! Now let’s try to ping something… NOTHING. MFDeploy sees it (the IP address it had months ago), the old version of Fez_Config_v13 sees it, but I can’t ping it from a command window.
WTF! THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.
