I’m really struggling getting started with my new meadowboard with VS 2019 on my Win 10 machine.
I was able to get the extension installed on VS no problem.
But I got very confused on flashing to the new Meadow OS.
The online tutorials just seem to show updating Meadow OS through an old VS extension feature that was removed. So that is no help to me now.
On the online guide here:
I was able to do all the prereqs, including updating my USB driver for ST devices.
But where I get stuck at is step 3.
The tutorial makes it sound as easy as typing “Meadow.exe -flashos” but when I try it that command I get this:
Command I run:
Response I get:
“Opening port ‘erial’…port not available”
Even if I didn’t get that error, I still have no clue where the flash OS command would be pulling the new binaries from.
Shouldn’t they be pulled in as an argument or something?
I also am confused as to why its looking for a serial port, when I used Zadig to remove it from my available serial ports in Windows.
I’m also confused as to if I need dfu-util to install this on Windows like OSX or Linux.
Could we have a separate install pages for Windows, OSX, and Linux? Merging them together in one page is really, really confusing me. Its not super clear which steps are exclusive to what systems.
I will really appreciate any help!!
