Mountaineer Ethernet Mainboard problem


#1

I was wanting to do a demo project using the Mountaineer Ethernet Mainboard but I seem to be having a problem getting past this error:

Resolve: unknown type: Microsoft.SPOT.Touch.TouchGestureEventArgs

All I’m trying to do is:



        private void ProgramStarted()
        {
            Debug.Print("Program Started");

            Mainboard.SetDebugLED(true);
        }


I don’t have any modules or network connections and I’m using VS2012 and it was a fresh project.

Did a update of firmware to 4.2 QFE1

MFDeplay device capability check

Any suggestions as to what I need to do to get this board back in the game before I toss it in the WTF bucket.

Output windows

Thanks

Remove the references you don’t need…particularly the touch one …


#3

I did remove all the unused reference and it didn’t want to go away. I then switched back over to the 4.2 QFE2 but its a bit more than a tad flakey when it comes to USB connections etc. and so I’ve run out of time for this and have tossed these boards into the WTF bucket until some updates come out for it (which I’m sure will arrive sometime).


#4

Actually it might be easier if you update your board to 4.3 beta …
Use MFDeploy to update the firmware…

Yes. See here for the upgrade steps and the necessary files:

Duke, I’ve tried out your example, it seems to work (see image).

Beware, however, that most module suppliers haven’t yet adapted or at least recompiled their module drivers for NETMF 4.3…
