Trying to get started with Gadgeteer - VStudio express 2012 - C#-

Hello! I’m a newbie, just got the blue box of stuff today.

I’ve never done C# or VStudio 2012, but do have experience with VBasic and studio 2005.

Was able to follow the installation instructions and believe I am close.
I was trying to do one of the example projects with a camera and button.

However, when I try to run under debug, I get a Link failure: some assembly references cannot be resolved!!

I can see in the Add References (under Project), that everything is there so I don’t get why
it cannot resolve. See attached image. I’m sure it is some simple thing I have to click somewhere but cannot see anything obvious as to what to do.

I also look at the project properties Reference Paths and can see nothing is there, so I added a couple of the paths (ie C:\Program Files\GHI Electronics\GHI Premium NETMF v4.2 SDK\Assemblies) but that doesn’t do anything.

searching the internet hasn’t yielded anything useful so far… CAn anyone help??

Hi Dave, and welcome ! You’ve started a great hobby :slight_smile:

this usually means the firmware on your device is not up to date. Can you run through the Fez Config app on your PC to check and apply the latest firmware and try again?

Thanks Brett,

I ran the configure program (it is pretty cool) and looks like you are correct.

Now I don’t get the link errors -

Thanks a lot!

awesome news ! Glad to have helped.
