I'm trying to use my Axon II and having trouble. I'm on Windows Vista 32bit Business Edition. I've compiled the photovore example available here:http://www.societyofrobots.com/axon2/downloads/Axon2_WebbotLib_Photovore_example.zip
I corrected the ServoPWM include typo while I was at it.
The link to FBoot on this page is broken:http://www.societyofrobots.com/axon2/axon2_setup3.shtml
The link it specifies is:http://www.societyofrobots.com/axon2/downloads/FBOOT17.EXE
On a hunch, I used this URL instead:http://www.societyofrobots.com/axon/downloads/FBOOT17.EXE
This is likely the Axon FBoot and I had no idea if it would work or not with the Axon II. Anyways, I tried to use it and it doesn't work. I use this command line:
fboot17 -b115200 -c2 -pTestProject.hex -vTestProject.hex
And it just spins like this with the | symbol spinning away:
COM 2 at 115200 Baud: |
I've left it spinning for more than 10 minutes before giving up several times. I've tried dropping it to 9600 baud - no effect. I've tried using a different physical USB port as well - no effect. I've tried changing the port number on the command line and it fails immediately so I think all the settings are right. Here is what's in the Device Manager:
Silicion Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge (COM2)
Bits Per Second: 115200
Data Bits: 8
Stop Bits: 1
Flow Control: None
Using all of those same settings, I've used Putty to connect to the device but I don't know how to tell it's working. It ACTS like I'm connected and doesn't error or anything but I also don't see any output. So where to from here? I'd really planned on using it over this weekend but it's not looking good.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
