Topic: Visual Micro Installation (Read 2136 times) previous topic - next topic



So i have gotten a little bit sick of the multiple windows for having multiple files with the arduino IDE so I was looking to move my arduino programming to Visual C++ as I have worked with this before.  I found a pluggin that is meant to solve all of the normal definition problems associated and also allow uploading (as far as I can tell).

However, I can't seem to get it to work correctly.

Current IDE: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express
Plugin: version 27 provided here: http://visualmicro.codeplex.com/releases/view/77923

I originally found reference to the plugin here: http://arduino.cc/playground/Code/VisualMicro

I have downloaded the file and installed it, however when i follow the instructions on the above link and try to create a new project I cannot find the described arduino template.

I have read this: http://visualmicro.codeplex.com/documentation but it doens't offer much help and the link titled "new users please read" doesn't appear to be up.  as far as i can tell the site visualmicro.com doesn't appear to be up.

Any suggestions?

If you look on the left side of the the Visual Micro documentation page you linked to, the System Requirements show this:

System Requirements
For Use

Visual Studio 2008 or 2010 SP1 (not express versions), with C++, C# and VB.NET
.NET3.5 or .NET 4.0
Arduino Development Tool (Must run once after install and before using the addin)
Microsoft Windows


It's working now.

Current IDE: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express

That would be the problem.
