DoWould you have time to install Oracle VirtualBox and see if it exhibits the same issue? Officially (from the product specs page) there is "limited USB support" for VMware and Oracle VirtualBox. This is due to the way that VMs deal with virtualized USB. That said...we'd still like to provide the best possible experience (although in this may be through another VM or through gen2 hardware).

It is definitely virtual machines issue - not working neither on VMware neither on VirtualBox but work in non VM environment.

What edition and version of VMware are you using? On what host operating system?

Try switching to the legacy MFUSB drivers in VMware.


Cool, I'll try that ASAP and will report results here.

Hi Chris,


I have tried to update to my Netduino Plus to 4.2.0 update1 under VMware Player 5.0.1 with Windows 7.

Tried that 6-7 times. I have erased the Netduino and uploaded the bootloader for 4.2, followed every single step to the point.


No joy at all. Got some monkey symbols in FMDeploy when trying to connect and set my Network settings. Most of the time cannot recognise and connect to the device :(


Any ideas?


PS I've tried this with - every time the process goes smoothly.
