I have figured out to run Netduino with 4.2 sdk, 4.2 firmware etc on my Mac in W8.1 pro under Parallels


I am therefore reluctant to revert to a 4.1 set up, since I need to work on my app which appears to demand a 4.2 context, also your previous messages suggested thatI need to be in 4.2 context in order to load the drivers in W8.1 (which does not explicitly support Netduino drivers).


Whilst I may need to come back to this issue - I need to moveon and find alternative systems to use to teach my grandsons programming and electronics.


I therefore mark this as closed.


Thank-you for your time.

I am afraid I do not see how your last post (yesterday 08:48) relates to the points made in my last post (yesterday 07:57) - I think they 'crossed in the post'!

I do not really know what I am doing - but I am persistent ...




I (re) installed micro framework V4.1 and this allowed C# to load and build my app.


I downloaded the Netduino Firmware 4.2 and after many attempts finally managed to install EF_Flash and EF_config.


Device manager can now see the Netduino as a USB device  with driver 6.1.7601.17514.


VS2010 however cannot deploy my app - "an error has occurred please check your hardware".


Progress but the need for MicroFrameWork to be installed is a bit worrying! And it still does not run my app.




On my OSX (w8.1pro) the first time I tried to deploy and debug my app on the newly set up Netduino it all worked as expected!!!! My app ran just fine.


BUT when I stopped the debug and rebuilt/redeployed my app it ran into the " ... not initialised state; rebooting". (disconnected the Netduino and tried again - no change) shutdown parallels etc and reloaded everything - no change. So it ran once and that was it!



Thank-you for your patience and support

Thank-you for your help - I have been responding to your suggestions in the context of my first  problem that my laptop running w8.1 does not see the Netduino - and cannot find/install drivers - and Microsoft's device manager cannot find drivers.


In this context I do not see why the firmware version or the SDK are relevant - microsoft tools cannot talk to the (version1?) Netduino - or am I missing something?


Anyway (ON MY LAPTOP)  i uninstalled MIcroFramework sdk 4.1 and checked that I have  Netmf sdk 4.2 installed, and Netduino SDK v4..2.2 - I now get the response 'Project Type not supported by this installation', and I cannot now load the Solution!


How do tell which Netduino board I have, and what firmware is installed? I thin k I need some help to get back a known state!


I have to say I more confused than when I started! The board's mfdeploy 'ping' response (in OSX/parallels/w8.1 Pro) has changed from TinyClr to TinyBooter - so I can no longer checkout the problem of being unable to run the board in OSX/... (my first problem).
