Strange deployment problem


All of the sudden this morning I’m getting this error when I try to deploy anything (known working programs as well) to my Domino:

[quote]Incrementally deploying assemblies to device
Deploying assemblies for a total size of 21704 bytes
Assemblies successfully deployed to device.
The debugging target and the debugger engine failed to initialize because of unspecified device errors.
The debugger engine thread has terminated unexpectedly with error ‘Object reference not set to an instance of an object.’.[/quote]

Sometimes it works fine, sometimes not.


Must be a Visual Studio thing as it just crashed on me. In addition to the error report above I also see this strange GC dump:

Maybe you added assemblies that you shouldn’t add that are eating your memory!

Try new project, you should have over 40K of free RAM


No, very small programs that I have used many times. The total size of the assembly for this program was

[quote]Deploying assemblies for a total size of 21704 bytes


That is not what the GC says! The memory has gone somewhere :slight_smile:


It turns out that if you have PWM hooked to I/0(0) when it reboots it causes the problem. I was feeding the PWM output to the input pin for testing. I’m not sure why it causes this strange error though.
