I just received my Fez Panda board this weekend and I am having a lot of trouble trying to get an application to deploy on there.
I am currently trying to go through the starter guide and am able to get the emulator to deploy but when I try to deploy the application on the Panda, I keep getting an error stating “The Debugging target is not in an initialized state…Rebooting.”
After searching the boards for people with a similar error, I have tried just about every fix recommended but I still keep getting the same error. I have gone ahead and un-installed and re-installed my Windows .NET package and GHI SDK. I have created new projects after re-installing SDK to test. I have checked to make sure the Firmware on the Panda matches up to the SDK version number I have installed but still no luck. These are the stats I get when I access device capabilities using MFDeploy tool:
As far as the GHI package release notes are concerned, my GHI SDK package states:
Important note: Requires .NET Micro Framework 4.1 and Visual Studio 2010
• USBizi (FEZ Mini, FEZ Domino, FEZ Rhino, FEZ Panda) V 220.127.116.11
• EMX (FEZ Cobra) V 18.104.22.168, TinyBooter V 22.214.171.124
• ChipworkX V 126.96.36.199 TinyBooter V 188.8.131.52
• GHI NETMF Library V 184.108.40.206
I have downloaded and am running Visual Studio 2010 and I’m pretty sure my firmware and SDK versions line up.
Finally, I am able to ping my Panda and get the result “Pinging…TinyCLR” using MFDeploy and I have gone ahead and erased any previous code that might have been on the board using the Erase option but I just just cannot seem to deploy any new code to it.
Any ideas, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks a ton!
