I searched the forum for an answer to these question but didn't find any answers so hopefully I am not repeating any past questions. I have the Netduino Plus working for the most part under Video Studio C#. 1. How do I change Visual Studio to come up in visual basic instead of c#? 2. Is there a template for the Netduino Plus for visual basic? Thanks.

Hello, Firstly you will need to install version 4.2 SDK and upgrade the firmware on the device.. Then you will either need VS enterprise edition which has all the languages supported or you will have to install Microsoft 2010 Visual Basic express. This is a free version downloadable from MS. You will have to install Visual basic BEFORE the SDK so that it registers all the project types correctly. Any problems please feel free to drop me a PM. Cheers Pete.
I was going to change the world, then I discovered Netduino.
The world will have to wait.

I installed the new firmware last night and had everthing working under C# (or most everything). Today I wanted to swap the default language in Visual Studio 2010 so that when I try to open a new project it will open as visual basic.

I think I got this problem above solved. When I open a new project it showed "other language" below C#. I now have it where I can open a Netduino template.

Unfortunately I can't get either Visual Basic Express 2010 or Visual C# Express 2010 to open without an error on file locations. I have tried to change the directories, but no joy.

If I can get the Express's to work I will most likely send back the Video Studio (save some money). I got in a hurry to try / play with my Netduino Plus and didn't see the line where it said that the Visual C# Express was free.

Thanks for your help Pete,
Chuck
