My software effort on this project started 2 years ago on the hydra. It evolved to the g400d. Due to a recent dev board/g400 hardware failure I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade (my hardware and) development environment from netmf to tinyclr os. The hardware is new. Samba loaded the ghi bootloader ok, but the next step failed. Tinyclr config will not connect to the board.
Following the instructions to hold down sysb while resetting or powering up, the device manager shows:
GHI Bootloader Interface (COM10)
COM 10 shows up in tinyclr config too, but attempting to connect yields:
If I hold down sysa while resetting, device manager shows:
Bossa Program Port (COM9)
I know this isn’t supposed to work, and it doesn’t.
I loaded the previous version of tinyclr config and it does the same thing. I’m stuck. I seem to have hit a dead end.
If insanity is repeating an action while hoping for a different outcome, I’m there. What am I missing? Anybody?
