I am just getting started with the NP2, and after several successful "blink-the-LED" efforts I switched to try the PWM functions, and started getting compile warnings (overflow will not throw exception), I was unable to reprogram the device. 

I tried the deployment tool, and find that while I can ping the device and get back the following:

Pinging... IP Address:
No debugger!
Create TS.
 Loading start at 806a988, end 8085288
Assembly: mscorlib (
Assembly: Microsoft.SPOT.Native (

Assembly: Microsoft.SPOT.IO (

Assembly: Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.PWM (
Assembly: Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.Usb (
Assembly: SecretLabs.NETMF.Diagnosti
After I get this, if I re-ping, there is no response.  Also, if I disconnect and reconnect (unplug/plug) I get the same response.  Please note it always fails to complete the line: "Assembly: SecretLabs.NETMF.Diagnosti" and I do not know if there should be more lines. 
I am not sure what I should do next.  Perhaps erase the device and reload?  If so, is there a procedure with locations of the necessary files specified?
Running Win8.0/32 on an old laptop.  The target framework is .NET Micro Framework 4.2. Using Visual Studio 2012 pro and VB.

Hi rockybooth, Try erasing and reflashing the board. That's a safe thing to do. Beyond that...if you continue having troubles...please post a copy of your code and we can help you diagnose the issue. Chris
