Since I’m still waiting for my hardware to come, I’ve started implementing UI and Modbus stuff, and testing it in emulator. This is generally working, but debugging is like a pain in the a… :
It feels way slower than using VS2012 with legacy drivers on win 8 (serial speed).
It takes seconds to step over (F10) or view a variable value.
Is this by design or did I miss something!? :think:
Debugging under Emulator was painfully slow for me as well. Done it once or twice.
I want my hardware. Ordered it a half eternity ago (eternity = month).
@ Reinhard Ostermeier - Up until a few months ago I was living in Europe and I would order all my GHI kit from eu.mouser.com. Shipping is free if the order is over 75 euro and it normally took 4 days to arrive. If they did not carry a particular component I would have to wait an additional 4 weeks (typically) for them to order it. No customs issues or extra payments where required. Of course the downside is that you cannot take advantage of discounts.
@ taylorza - I normally order at Watterott (if they have it).
This time I order directly at GHI because I needed MedusaMini which was out of stock at mouser, and Watterott does not have it listed so far.
Also the 30% discount is what I have to pay on customs and taxes (more or less), so the price was quite good with free shipping.
