Title: "uploading to wiring hardware..." never completes
Post by Neil Bartlett on 01/31/10 at 03:05:28
I'm running on Vista. I have a fairly old board -- I purchased it approx a year ago but just got around to using it  :'(

I downloaded Wiring 023 and VCP 2.06 and installed them as per instructions. I wired up the standard blink circuit and used the standard program. I set up version 2 hardware and the correct COM port. The program complies correctly, but...

When I upload to hardware I get "uploading to wiring hardware..." message but it never completes.

I've tried:
- V1 and V2 hardware.
- pressing the reset button directly before such that the amber light doesn't flash before I push the upload button
- pressing the reset button then pressing the upload button after the amber light flashes
- not pressing the reset button before the upload.

I cycle my machine (full power down) between each attempt.

Nothing works (though V1 does produce an error saying try to use v2).

Any ideas what else I can try to debug my issue?

Thx
Neil

Answering my own qn (strange how after fights for nearly two hours with this, the solution comes within a few mins of writing a full post)

- Answer was board was indeed version 1 architecture, but I had not tried the "reset and don't want for amber led to blink" combination.

So I have a version 1 board.

hi Neil, yes it is version 1.x. You have to reset after uploading and then wait for a few seconds for the board to restart.
