Looks like since I upgraded the usb driver on my PC to have the Netduino work with the latest [Deploy], the updater [NetduinoUpdate] does not pick up the device anymore (or it sees the firmware version to be current and therefore ignore it).
Also, I can't remember a menu function to load firmware from disk on the Windows version of [NetduinoUpdate]. I think its only the Mac version allowing that.
So, a message to the developer of [Deploy_Beta], is it possible to fix it? Otherwise, please send me your code so I can try to debug it. I notice it is done Xamarin Forms, which I know well.
