Snippet - Using MFDeploy to trace through USB

I just posted Using MFDeploy to trace through USB on Codeshare. Feel free to discuss and make suggestions here.


This seems like it could be incredibly useful. I’ve seen a lot of posts from newbies wanting to connect PC apps to their NETMF devices without giving up the ability to debug in VS. Correct me if I’m wrong, this tool makes it trivial.

It’s just like connecting to mfdeploy, once connected you can’t deploy from Vs…

You can only see Debug messages one way with this simple setup, but its convenient for me, as I might be working on something else and want to occasionally check that the gadgeteer is running

I figured you couldn’t use VS and your app at the same time, but just being able to switch between them should be very nice for newbs.

About the one-way communication, Debug.Assert doesn’t give you two way communications? I figured it might.

EDIT: I did look and I don’t see a way to override and implement your own handling for Debug.Assert
