Hi, I have 5 ChipKit Wifire boards. I have received them with preloaded FlowCloud app. I have experience with different embedded boards - I was able to use them without problems. After connecting Wifire with my PC (Windows 7) I'm able to connect with FlowCloud app on the board through serial communication. I can set up wifi configuration etc. But I can't upload any code to the board - if I compile & try to upload example code (Blink) MPIDE compiles and then infinitely tries to upload code. Sometimes it throws back an error " Serial port already in use" - probably it's FlowCloud app trying to configure through serial port. Manually resetting device didn't help, either installing FTDI drivers, using different boards ( from 5 available), different PC, different cable, different version of MPIDE. I don't own chipKIT programmer (like this http://www.digilentinc.com/Products/Detail.cfm?NavPath=2,892,1078&Prod=chipKIT PGM) and I would like to avoid buying this - unfortunately I don't have money for that atm : ) LED states - first LED is blinking in interval of 1000ms ( according to FlowCloud documentation, it tries to configure WiFi). FlowCloud documentation didn't help me. They suggest using PGM programmer, but I don't think that's the best solution - I prefer to use bootloader on the board and upload code with USB cable. Is this not possible in Digilents chipKIT solution?
Hello, noob here I just started a project for my university BEng and is based on the chipKit WiFire provided by my supervisor. So far, i felt in love wth MPIDE because is so easy to use and it has all ready for me with 1 exception. The Flowcloud library. For the first 2 months and so I just figured out how to use MPIDE because the boards were from flowcloud so the USB-to-serial cable didn't work so I burned the Bootloader with Digilent's firmware. But now, I lost the Flowcloud app from the PIC chip that my project depends on so much because is required to use a cloud service. Anyhow, my request is: Can someone please tell me how to add the Flowcloud libraries and example codes/functions to work with MPIDE? I really hate MPLAB X because is so complicated and has no examples. Thank you in advance. P.S. I already talked in Flowcloud developer forum about this issue but they told me this is Digilent/chipkit's domain to integrate flowcloud/MPLAB Harmony libraries with MPIDE.
