Hi I'd just like to communicate this feedback concerning the recently released Netduino SDK 126.96.36.199 (May 2015).
Issue: Device Driver NOT Found (i.e. for the Netduino)
- Windows 7 x64
- Netduino Plus 2
Prior to installing Netduino SDK 188.8.131.52 I had Netduino SDK 4.3.1 on my computer. I just did an install of the new SDK without uninstalling the old one beforehand. I watched the installation proceed and saw that it posted a message about adjusting (probably a different word) the existing installation. After the installation I saw in Programs & Features (Control Panel) that the Netduino SDK version number got bumped to the new version and that there was only 1 Netduino SDK registered.
AFTER doing this, when I attached my NP2 to the computer via the serial cable, I got a Windows error message stating that it could not find the driver for my device. A reboot of the computer did not resolve the issue.
Consequently, I uninstalled the Netduino SDK, rebooted the computer, and then installed it again. After doing this, when I plugged in the NP2, it WAS able to find and setup the device driver. This RESOLVED the problem for me.
Hope that the problem was just isolated to me. But if not, hope this is helpful to others.
