In Topic: Getting started with Netduino Mini (early instructions)

I am trying to setup my netduino mini, but when i press open port in putty, i get windows blip and nothing happens, no error message. What am I missing?

This is my circuit

and the actual setup on a breadboard

Microsoft Visual C# Express 2010
Microsoft .NET Micro Framework v4.1 SDK
Netduino SDK v4.1

EDIT: Uhm nevermind i was in the wrong putty options >_>!

I forgot to mention one thing: The above circuit has manual switch (SW1) to disconnect the load from the battery, I'm assuming it is used to do so during charging. I don't know how exactly will LiPo cells behave when being charged under load (the switch accidentally left on), but in all likelihood it is not good idea - most charging circuits I've seen contain a switching element (i.e. MOSFET, either built-in or external), which automatically disconnects the load from batteries and connects it to the external power supply, and vice-versa (automatically connects the batteries when external power supply is detached).

the original circuit had the same switch and it was supposed to be working while charging (even had an extra animation, thats what the charging detection circuit is for). From what i read about lipo batteries it is possible to power a circuit while charging.

I found a balance charger circuit in an rc forum!

Can anyone tell me if it will work like this? I was already told i need to "adjust/change the resistors divider of LM2577" in the charging circuit , no idea how to do that yet
