Initial Firmware Update / Virtual COM Port


Hi all,

I’ve just purchased a FEZ Panda and apparently the first step is to verify and update the firmware. I downloaded and installed the GHI NETMF 4.1 SDK, and was trying to follow this: to update the firmware. The difficulty is that when I plug in the Panda (Vista x64 SP2), it doesn’t give me a Virtal COM Port, and nothing in the Device Manager would seem to indicate a device without a driver. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!


Press and hold LDR button and then connect the usb cable,or if already connected press RST button.


Now we’re cooking with gas - thanks so much!


No problem and welcome to the forum! ;D
