Doe anyone have experience running a development environment with two Netduinos?  Specifically one ND+ and one ND+2?


I was getting BSOD and decided to rebuild my environment and now I can't seem to communicate with two NDs.  It will recognize one or the other but not both.


I can use ND and ND+ without a problem, it's only when I plus in the ND2...

Hi AxelG, We often have multiple Netduinos plugged in at the same time. Are you using the MFUSB drivers or WinUSB drivers with your Netduino Plus 1? What version of firmware? Also...what version of the NETMF SDK? Chris

All of my ND and ND+ gen 1 and gen 2 are flashed to the latest firmware and everything running under 4.2 NETMF.


ND gen 1:

ND+ gen 1

ND+ gen 2


All the gen 1s are running WINUSB and gen 2 MFUSB on the latest  VM Player 5.0 Win7 ultimate 64 bit.


I can get all my gen 1 running OK together.  I have to reconnect them often in order to deploy and get into debug, but it is workable.


For the most part when running the gen 2 alone, deploying and debugging works OK.  If the gen 2 stops responding and needs to be disconnected; I will 100% of the time get a BSOD.  (It's not always fun having the ND+2 act as a hardware reset button in the middle of coding a project :) )
