New Arduino Hex Uploader and Programmer

Arduino Hex Uploader and Programmer You can use it to load the HEX file in ARDUINO without IDE AutoReset ,19200 bod, remembers last settings and very easy to use This can be useful when there is no need Arduino IDE to check device

You can also try Xloader...

Is the source code available?

NO.why ? sorry :(

alexhi: I did this programm for an industrial company, they were asked not to distribute the source code. sorry :(

There are things called "disassemblers"! :D

This program write CBuilder++ Success :)

What company wanted a front-end to avrdude? And why can't the source be distributed? This is hardly state secrets.

Did this company give you permission to distribute the .exe file?

There is no secret of course :) This is a wrapper program exe program I can give to everyone. X-loader gives you the source?

HI Alex,

The application is missing several features, - it does not detect new comports after startup - it offers no way to select a board (there are a few dozen arduino devices) - the ini file is not in .ini format (but thats a minor) - could not get it working so => readme.txt or getstarted.txt is missing

in my opinion the application adds no value above a command line avrdude.exe (cmd file).

(think the questions Nick raises are quite relevant, remember Arduino is an open source community)

  • it does not detect new comports after startup I know, I think how to do: (I must restart the program

  • it offers no way to select a board (there are a few dozen arduino devices) It's too much it should work with the boards 19200bod, 115200 added later

  • the ini file is not in .ini format (but thats a minor)

  • could not get it working so => readme.txt or getstarted.txt is missing I do not understand why?

  • in my opinion the application adds no value above a command line avrdude.exe (cmd file). It should be prepared by users :)

(think the questions Nick raises are quite relevant, remember Arduino is an open source community) My program does not use ARDUINO IDE I am writing a shell for avrdude and I don't owe anyone anything

If you are interested hardware loader

sreedevk: You can also try Xloader...

X-loader not a bad program, but it does not show the boot process, and errors :)

Thanks for your answers

Bad attitude for an open-source / open-hardware forum. A significant number of forum members could whip something like this up in Delphi, VB, Java, or even C++. Here is something similar with the source out on github: http://arduinodev.com/arduino-uploader/

Yep, I agree you don't own anyone anything, but by not enforcing the primary mission of this forum, nothing is what you get in return for your effort. Just my opinion, but...

?? Rey . I wrote this program thinking that it might be useful to someone. ( If you think it's easy to write it on the VB, what problems ? Write and place. I removed program. Good luck!

Worst attitude than before! Edit: If this was were a game, your points would be going into the negative region. (Subjunctive tense implies this is not a game...)

I already posted what I consider a better substitute for your code: I do not need to write it, but I could. Some of the forum members gave you some pretty good ideas for evolving your proprietary product. It's not that we are ungrateful for your efforts, but we just do not roll that way.

The Arduino GUI is fine for prototyping, at least for me. When doing commandline stuff , I am comfortable and proficient... I do not consider if "fun", but sometimes one just has to go to the commandline.

If I have lots of stuff to do, I create a script such as: http://www.instructables.com/id/Copy-n-Paste-Arduino-Firmware/# -or- http://forum.arduino.cc//index.php?topic=103662.msg777499#msg777499

I'm really being polite to you. I'm just not interested in your GUI thingy and I think as a newbie you should learn a bit of courtesy and also understand the fundamental driver of open-source. You will never be welcome here if you keep your mind (and code) closed. Of course, I suspect that you have no issues in taking whatever you want away from here for your own purposes!

=============================================================================================
Let it be (c) as you say. Close this topic :slight_smile:

alexhi: I wrote this program thinking that it might be useful to someone. ( If you think it's easy to write it on the VB, what problems ? Write and place. I removed program. Good luck!

As you have removed the program this topic now seems pointless. I will close it, and remove it once everyone has caught up with the responses.

@alexhi - in these days of viruses, trojan horses, and other malware, people are wary of downloading a large executable file, written by someone they have never heard of, for which no source code is available. By all means make contributions to the community, all input is welcome. But with an open mind, please.
