The thing here is, probably you are in this case, I installed on two fresh computers. One is always good, no matter how many times install or unistall gadgeeter core.
Another one, after I uninstalled gageteer core, then install gadgeteer core again, the gadgeteer item doesn’t come back, mean I can’t see gadgeteer item again. I didn’t try unistall VS2015 and clear cache. But if you are in this case, you may need uninstall VS2015, clear all cached, reset computer and install VS again.
So I do have 3 computers that installed GHI gadgeteer stuff, two work fine, one seems don’t but did not try resintall VS2015. If spend more time it should work I think.
Then install Gadgeeter core again. Actually I did same yesterday but it didn’t work. Today, I try again, and see that when I re-start VS2015, one or two messages say clearing cache shown up (from VS2015), it was very fast so I couldn’t capture them, but after that, Gadgateer item shown up when I make project.
Three PC are happy with Gadgeteer on VS2015 now. I guess you need uninstall and reinstall VS2015 for sure.
I had to remove EVERY Visual Studio version and deleted manually all folders I could find.
Then installes the files I shared here.
Now I have also the GHI designer available, with The Hydra and Reaper boards.
Just installed VS2013 Community edition with the below:
GHIElectronics NETMF-SDK-2016 R1.exe
Everything works fine on a spare Windows 11 laptop machine. I did have to flash the firmware on the FEZ Spider using a Windows 10 machine as Windows 11 would not install/enable the serial/USB driver to flash the board. I have about 30 of the Gadgeteer Spider starter kits I used to use for teaching and wanted to have a play with it again. Glad it all works fine, though I do not have any other versions of Visual Studio installed on the laptop atm.
If I have read the above correctly, I can install VS2015 Community Edition and this will work fine with the Gadgeteer designer etc?
It’s a USB client SP.
Connected to Secket 1.
It’s a FEZ Reaper.
I have a few other boards on stock.
As Gadgeteer got discontinued I bought a bunch of parts on last order, but then didn’t use it for a few years, so I try to set it up again now since I think it would be a waste to throw it all into the trash.
and possibly read that in conjunction with the netmf section in G80 because from all that, FezConfig will only see it if its in bootloader mode… also Bootloader (ghielectronics.com) has some more manual steps
