I've been trying to get my netbook setup so that I can work on my netduino stuff away from my PC.
I have installed C# Express 2010, .Net micro framework 4.1 and the Netduino SDK from the netduino.com downloads page, in that order (as they are listed).
I am able to write my program in C#E2010 fine, but when I come to deploy to the device, It is not available in the list of options for the target. MFDeploy.exe also does not find my netduino, and it is not listed in the System -> Device Manager window.
Also, there are no 'you just plugged something in' chimes when I plug the board in, which do get on my Desktop PC (running Win 7)
My netbook spec:
- DELL Insperon 1010
- Intel Atom CPU Z520 @ 1.33GHz
- 1GB RAM
- running Windows XP Pro version 2002 Service Pack 3
- Device manager sais that there's 3 USB and 1 USB2 ports, althugh there are only 3 physical sockets, so i think it may be that the USB2 port is shared.
two of my USB sockets have this logo and the other one has that with one solid and one dashed line beneath it, making me thing that it's the USB2 port, as its different. That might not mean anything or not though. I'm not 100% sure how USB ports work
I've tryed plugging into all of them anyway, no luck.
Is there anything in this spec that would stop my netbook recognising the Netduino, any more info I can provide that may be helpful or anything that I should try?
Apart from this (and I strongly suspect its something wrong with my laptop rather than the SDK) it's a brilliant little device, and I'm having loads of fun
