So my first day with the Netduino hasn't gone as well as I had hoped.
Firstly there was the difficulty in getting it to actually be detected by VS2012
Then eventually, it worked, where it started to blink the leds...
so then I try another simple application to control it via the button, and i either get the error message in that post above, "the device is not in an initilised state" or "Error 1 Unable to communicate with device USB:Netduino"
So at the moment, I cant even get the most simple test applicator to deploy properly. I've tried various USB ports. Windows does detect the netduino fine.
