Please Help: cannot deploy from VS 2012 into P2

28 November 2014 - 02:21 PM

I am unable to deploy my application using Visual Studio 2012.  I have three Netduino Plus 2 boards and all three act the same.  I can connect, erase, network configure, and display device capibilities using MFdeploy.  I can upgrade the boards to 4.3.1 using the NetduinoUpgrade program.


However when I try to deploy using VS2012, I am unable. The error message is:  'unable to communicate with device:USB:Netduino"


If I hit F5 while the USB cable is unplugged, and then plug it in, I seem to get further, I get a message that the debugger has been found, but the after a delay, it says "cannot attach debugger engine".


I used this same PC and setup to deploy the same application a couple of weeks ago with no problems, so I am puzzled why it no longer works, and not sure how to fix the problem.  I see other threads on similar issues, but the most recent one has no posted solution.


I have a customer order that I cannot ship until this is fixed.  Is there a way to get VS 2012 to create a file (like a hex file for example) such that MFdeploy can deploy it?





Where is Chris Walker?

He used to be very active answering questions posted here, but now seems to be AFK since Oct 4th, 2014. 


I am looking for some help getting a NP2 board working, is there someone else who has taken over his job answering questions in the forums, or another way to get support questions answered?
