There was a topic long ago about Pandas(and other boards) crashing during the debug download/run step, requiring a reset of the board then VS2010 happily reconnects to the board and continues.
I can’t find that thread, but it is 6 months or a year old. GHI requested code that could consistently simulate the problem, which was never forth coming.
I might have more info. Sort of.
I have a blue-tooth dongle connected to COM1. It’s printing data to PuTTY for debugging. During a reboot I saw a memory dump in PuTTY. I assumed it was PuTTY that crashed and restarted it. Turns out that my USBizi has crashed and needed a reset.
I just remember that the dump showed the CPU registers R1 through R16 I think, and a few others and a memory dump. Should I try to get a copy of this info again? Would it help to find the problem?
