I just purchased a netduino plus 2 and have tried to set it up following this guide


the netduino sdk intalls fine, but when i try to install .net micro framework it says I require visual c#2010 to be installed. I already have visual studio 2012?

I solved this first by installing .net MF 4.3 RTM




But then had to move MicroFramework folder from


C:UsersWayneioDocumentsVisual Studio 2010TemplatesProjectTemplatesVisual C#Micro Framework




C:UsersWayneioDocumentsVisual Studio 2012TemplatesProjectTemplatesVisual C#Micro Framework


However, now it's not working at all. I have changed transport level to USB and tried the following code:


        public static void Main()        {            // write your code here            OutputPort led = new OutputPort(Pins.ONBOARD_LED, false);            while (true)            {                led.Write(true); // turn on the LED                Thread.Sleep(250); // sleep for 250ms                led.Write(false); // turn off the LED                Thread.Sleep(520); // sleep for 250ms            }        }

It does nothing. No flashing LED. just solid on. Is it bricked from the factory?


In VS I get "The debugging target is not in an initialized state; rebooting..." - then it reboots and just says Ready

Hello Wayneio.


Maybe 250 mili second is just a little flash, to short to see?

If you change boths Thread.Sleep to Thread.Sleep(2000); (2 seconds on 2 seconds off)


Does it work than?

Netduino Plus 2 (v4.2.2.2)

250 ms is a quarter of a second and so the blinking should be obvious to the eye so I don't think thats it at all.
