I just got a FEZ Panda board, I have VS2010 with NETMF installed. I installed the GHI USB drivers and put the latest firmware on the Panda (4.1 something I beleive).
I’m a seasoned .NET developer, I’ve done some hobbyist-type stuff with sensors (using Phidgets), but I’m new to NETMF.
I checked out the samples, but couldn’t really find one that did the basics. I don’t have any input or output at the moment, so I just want to, in code A) see if I’m running in an emulator or not and B) get some basic information about the system/board/firmware/etc. Just using intellisense and trying different things, I get InvalidOperationException with just about everything I try using the emulator first.
Anyone have any good resources on how to start off with some basic output of some useful information about the current environment?
Also, I tried to add a reference to FEZPanda_GHIElectronics.NETMF.FEZ because I assume this is going to have some Panda-specific functionality, but this blows up when I run it via the emulator.
How do you make an emulator that acts like a Panda board?
Signed, the Newb - thanks!
