Initial Set Up Help


So I watched the set up video and read the manual for the FEZ DOMINO But I am still having problems connecting to my device.

When i plug it in the device LED blinks and has power. I start up visual studio 2010 and select FEZ domino. It opens up the flashing LED program. however when i try to compile it I get

An unhandled exception of type ‘System.InvalidOperationException’ occurred in FEZDomino_GHIElectronics.NETMF.FEZ.dll

Additional information: FEZ Domino not detected!

How do i connect through Visual studio?


Maybe you’re trying to run the code through the emulator.

In VS select Project -> Properties… -> .NET Micro Framework tab
Select USB in transport and see if it finds your device.


Hi, Thanks

I changed that option now I am getting


I asume you have installed the latest version on your PC, but did you flash the firmware of your board to the latest?

Both version (GHI libraries and board firmware) must match to get a working setup.


Sorry I did not can you explain to me how I can connect to my device and upload the frimware. I dont even know what program to use. I am new to hardware but familiar with visual studio. Once i get it going im good to go.


Don’t forget to select the 1K block on the dialog where you select the firmware file, I forgot that and it’s not clear on the tutorial.
