Visual Basic to program an arduino

So my friend and I really like all the things we could do with an Arduino.
But I have a problem that must be fixed.
As of this moment I don't think their is an program written for Visual Studio 2012 (Visual Basic) to upload code to an Arduino.
Because of our projects we really need a Visual Basic code uploader.
Anyone has any how to do this? It must be possible i think...

Thanks in Advance Dennis

The Arduino IDE doesn't upload code. It calls a program called AVRDUDE to upload the compiled binary code.

Look in your Arduino program folder for AVRDUDE and look for its documentation there.

If you can call a shell program like AVRDUDE from Visual Basic then you can do what you asked for.

Visual Studio
This is for VB - 2013…
I think that, Did you make a ‘real’ search for your issue that you might find a 2012 version…
This was my simple Google search term… " arduino visual studio "…

Mr Google is your friend…, Use It First.

Doc

The VisualMicro plug-in, from VisualMicro.com, allows using VisualStudio, and AtmelStudio, for wring, compiling, downloading, and debugging Arduino applications. It does NOT allow VisualBasic programs to be run on an Arduino, if that's what you're expecting. Arduino applications are written in c++.

There is nothing stopping you from writing a compiler to compile visual basic source code into arduino machine language. nothing stopping you at all.

That would be quite a project!

This demo shows how to use the Arduino at the command line to compile and upload an Arduino program from the Geany editor. It uses a small Python program. You could use a similar technique with any programming language.

But you can ONLY program an Arduino using C/C++.
(Unless you want to write your own compiler, as someone suggested).

...R

You will probably get better answers if you explain what you are trying to do and why. You may not need to do what you think you need to do. We see that a lot here.
