'System.ArgumentException' in Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.dll when starting app

26 May 2016 - 08:38 AM

Good morning everyone.

After a few years of neglecting my netduino plus 2, I have recently dusted the board and tried to get my dev environment back up and running.


I use Visual Studio .NET 2013, so I installed

> .NET MF v4.3 (QFE2)

> Visual Studio NetMF plugin v4.3.2.3

> netduino SDK v4.3.2.1

> Flashed my netduino Plus 2 with Firmware


I created a new project ("Netduino Application (Universal)") in Visual Studio - no code in the Main() function, and pressed F5.


I then get the following exception:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred in Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.dll

<Break> <Continue> <ignore>(disabled)


If I click the Break button, VS shows a message indicating "GoHub.cs not found"

If I click the Continue button, the code is executed (confirmed using a breakpoint), but surely something did not initialize correctly...


If anyone can help me to get this fixed, I would appreciate it.

Kind regards,
