Sorry, everyone, but I’ve Googled for hours and read through this forum as well.
Nothing I’ve tried works.
Here’s my setup and what I’ve tried:
Windows 7 64-bit.
.NET MF SDK 4.2 (QFE2)
GHI NETMF v4.2 and .NET Gadgeteer Package 2013-02-14
Using a powered USB hub (have tried with and without)
After installing all of the above:
With USB disconnected and switches in “Default” mode, I connect the USB:
The USB driver installs correctly and “Debuggable .Net Micro Framework Device” shows up in Device Manager.
I can use EMX Updater to ping and get firmware version (126.96.36.199) just fine.
However, when I flip the switches to “GHI Loader” mode, hit reset button on board:
The USB driver attempts to install, but warns that “Device driver was not successfully installed”.
Device Manager shows “GHI Boot Loader Interface (COM6)” with yellow yield/exclamation, it’s device status is "The device cannot start. (Code 10).
I have attempted to manually update the driver (using the “Have Disk…” method) with the one located at:
C:\Program Files\GHI Electronics\GHI NETMF USB Drivers\USB Drivers\GHI_Bootloader_Interface
It chugs on it for a moment, then finishes with “Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device” (Code 10 again)
Looking deeper, Event Viewer leads to this:
Sig.Name=Setup class GUID
Sig.Name=PnP problem code
FriendlyEventName=Could not load driver software
AppName=GHI Boot Loader Interface (COM6)
ReportDescription=Windows was able to successfully install device driver software, but the driver software encountered a problem when it tried to run. The problem code is 10.
I’ve tried to install the other drivers per this:
But, every other possible combination results in “The folder you specified doesn’t contain a compatible software driver … for x64-based systems”
I’m hoping I’m missing something really obvious.
Greatly appreciate some help so that I can successfully update the firmware via the “GHI Loader” mode and then proceed with development.
