I just bought the SmartEverything FOX Board years ago which is Arduino compatible http://www.smarteverything.it/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/SmartEverything-User-Guide-Ver-1.01.pdf and simply tried to get started with it.
I am running on a windows 10 PC,
I can compile the sketches but I cannot upload sketches on it, when I try, it gets stuck on uploading, whether it is a basic script (blinkRBG) or even the default one with empty setup and loop methods, my laptop processor keeps running at 100% and nothing happens.
The board does not do anything, tx/rx leds do not flash. The program will remain uploading for an infinite time.
I cannot upload anything to the board with anything (tried on ACER laptop, DELL laptop and any PC)
I have tried to manually install some drivers from GitHub on both my computer and laptop but it does not seem to recognise the COM Port when I look at the device manager. The error window is as follows:
cannot complete the device driver installation wizard
Arrow (www.arow.com) Arrow USB Driver (for...) Install failed
When I try to upload, I only get the compiling logs:
Caused by: processing.app.SerialException: Error touching serial port 'COM4'.
... 5 more
Caused by: jssc.SerialPortException: Port name - COM4; Method name - openPort(); Exception type - Port busy.
... 6 more
I am connecting directly from my board to my laptop through USB 3.0, I don't have USB2.0 plugs on my laptop, and I currently don't have any programmer device.
I tried with different versions of arduino IDE (1.6.4 1.6.5 nightly), same issue every time.
The IDE does not see my board connected to any COM PORT
