Full redeploy on rebuild

Why does meadow re-deploy ALL assemblies each time I build my code !!!

Why do all the assemblies take 00:03:20 !?
Finished deploying at 15:45 - 28 minutes to deploy - what a joke !

Sorry but using the Meadow board is always such a painful experience, I am migrating across to NanoFramework which is quick to deploy and has full debug facilities, networking etc.

Okay, after much pain re-flashing the OS (needed to replace the ST driver with the help of Zadig), the deploy is much quicker :slight_smile:

Might persevere for a bit longer (until I give up waiting for debugging to be implemented !)

Andy

Nope, it is back doing it again.
New application took 20 minutes to download and run.
Made a one line change and again deploying ALL assemblies - WTF !

Deploy started at 12:32 and took 20:39.833 minutes

It is interesting that several DLLs take more or less the same time to deploy 00:03:20 - could this be a timeout ?

Andy

Can anyone from Wilderness Labs comment on this please !!
It is unusable to have to wait 20 minutes each time I make a change to my code.
