MKR wifi 1010 - Couldn't find a board on selected port

Windows 10
Arduino MKR Wifi 1010
Blynk

Hi all,

I just bought a Arduino MKR Wifi 1010 and I'm trying to upload a simple Blynk example sketch to it. It compiles fine, however, every time I try to upload the sketch, I'm getting the following error:


Couldn't find a Board on the selected port. Check that you have the correct port selected. If it is correct, try pressing the board's reset button after initiating the upload.


As you can in the attached file, the device manager seems to recognize the port just fine.

I've tried clicking the reset button, and re-uploading, but to no avail.

Any other ideas I can try?

Thanks!
Mike

Please do this:

  • (In the Arduino IDE) File > Preferences
  • Uncheck the checkbox next to “Show verbose output during: compilation”
  • Check the checkbox next to "Show verbose output during: upload
  • Click “OK”
  • Sketch > Upload
  • After the upload fails, you’ll see a button on the right side of the orange bar “Copy error messages” (or the icon that looks like two pieces of paper at the top right corner of the black console window in the Arduino Web Editor). Click that button.
  • In a forum reply here, click on the reply field.
  • Click the </> button on the forum toolbar. This will add the forum’s code tags markup to your reply.
  • Press “Ctrl + V”. This will paste the upload output between the code tags.
  • Move the cursor outside of the code tags before you add any additional text to your reply.

Did you do the quick double tap on the reset button to put it in BOOTLOADER mode ?
That will also put it onto a new COM port too so don't forget to change to that one.

See also the stickies in the section you are being moved to.

Bob.

UPDATE: Ok, sorry, I'm an idiot. Just saw that my board wasn't selected under Tools > Port. :confused: Carry on. As you were. Sorry to waste your time.

Thank you pert, here is the error message:

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

I'm glad to hear it's working now. Thank you for taking the time to post an update. Enjoy!
