I've recently started developing a project using a Netduino 3 Wifi having not really used Netduino boards before. I have finally been able to write code in VS Express 2013 and executed it on the board but it took quite some time to get to this point as I originally tried to use the latest versions of everything and ran into problems - hence the following queries that people here may be able to answer:


I have updated the netduino firmware using the latest available on the site


The latest .net microframework is 4.4 - is this not supported by the latest firmware as changing the project to use this framework I get the following when deploying to the board:



Attaching deployed file.


Assembly: Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.SerialPort (




*                                                                     *


* ERROR!!!!  Firmware version does not match managed code version!!!! *


*                                                                     *


*                                                                     *


* Invalid native checksum: Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.SerialPort 0x4E6685A9!=0x1C1E5B6D *


*                                                                     *






Link failure: some assembly references cannot be resolved!!



Assembly: Object ( needs assembly 'get_Directory' (


Assembly: Object ( needs assembly 'Microsoft.SPOT.Net' (


Assembly: Object ( needs assembly 'Microsoft.SPOT.Native' (


Error: a3000000


Waiting for debug commands...


The program '[1] Micro Framework application: Managed' has exited with code 0 (0x0).



The other main issue was that I started trying to use Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition. I managed to get the Netduino templates available such that I could create a Netduino application but on trying to build the solution I get:

could not find library 'Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll'
How do I fix that?
Thanks in advance
