We want to make your experience with GHI devices even more pleasurable We are working on this tool that should simplify a lot of tasks. We see couple improvements already and this is the first public release so problems are possible but please let us know if you face any issue.
If you love it, send us some beer. If not, let us know what we can do to make it better…beer is still welcome
Very nice tool and beautiful UI Design.
I don’t know about Network and Wireless configuration.
For example, If I load the Network configuration to the board, means I don’t need to setup the network configurations to the code(for example IP adress,… )?
And what is the difference with the button of Load and Apply?
Nice tool indeed.
I just saw also the updater tab: I have a FEZ Domino, FEZ mini and some weeks now a FEZ Cerbuino Bee, those are not listed, is it possible to include does as well or when it is managed by one of the options already, please put a tooltip/hint telling so.
The only 4 options on the “Updater” are EMX, Spider, G120, and Hydra. So this doesn’t include a USBizi device, so that counts out your Domino and Mini, and it doesn’t include a Cerb-family device and that also counts out your Cerbuino Bee. Edit: USBizi devices are not being “enhanced” any further, which would explain why GHI opted to not include that as an option in this. Plus I don’t know whether the MFDeploy update option works with the limited memory of the USBizi. You can still use the “USBizi updater” application that comes with the SDK to help this.
I understand the reason of th USBizi family, but looking as a newbe. It is not that clear which you can use or not. When you do not have one listed.
The same about the upgrader included framework files SDK’s newbe’s dont know what to do with that part of the installation process.

I would like to see in the LCD Configuration a list of correct presets for the LCD’s GHI sells (others if you have the information.
I got a bit lost (I’m old… So…) - The button Erase in panel Application Deployment. Seemed a bit out of place to me.
Relabel the button? Maybe it it just the way I look at things. To me app deploy is not erasing. It is creating…
It misses one important thing about the CONFIG.HEX. If we modify the config (lets say that our app does not need to have touchscreen and reuses the corresponding ios for something else), then I need a tool to extract from memory the config in order to reuse it when performing IFU. Otherwise after IFU the board needs to reboot to reapply headless config. Mfdeploy does not do that, whereas I believe it should be really easy. I do not have time to go deeper in MFDeploy and did not find the source code yet (only dll api’s) but I think this could be usefull
Yesterday I got my new Cobra II. I had some issues to deploy an application from Visual Studio 2010 after I made the firmware update with the new configuration tool GHI_NETMF_Configuration_Toolv003.exe. In Visual Studio I got the error message: Device not found or cannot be opened – USB:Gadgeteer.
I finally had success when I did the firmware update with the Version 4.2.9 Updater: Program Files\GHI Electronics\GHI Premium NETMF v4.2 SDK\Firmware Update\G120Updater.exe when I set the option Set USB Friendly name to Gadgeteer(optional)
Does anybody else have the same problem with the new Coniguration-Tool or am I doing something wrong?
