Re: Arduino Programming In Flowcode v6

Post by john_m0ers »

Hi,
Some time ago I bought a few arduino unos rev3. I should have looked at the arduino language first!
Having followed this link with interest, am I correct in assuming that the only way you can program the uno is via an external
programmer such as the stk500?
Is there no way to program the uno through the usb port using flowcode 6?
thanks john

I'm not much help here... I did want you to know that I never got my Pro Micro to program via USB in FC6, but programming via USB works perfectly using the Arduino software.

Hello,

The current status is devices with the USB to UART like the Uno are working fine via Flowcode. Devices with an internal bootloader are missing the functionality to reset the board into bootloader mode so this is very hit and miss based on when you push the reset button.

Using 6.0.9 you do this to get the Uno to work.

Build -> Compiler Options -> Programmer Tab

Location: $(appdir)compilers\avr\batchfiles\avrc_arduinoA.bat

Params: $(chipalt) stk500 com7 115200 "$(target).hex"

Where Com7 is the port for the Uno.

Hi, thanks to RobH and Benj,
So although it mentions stk500, you actually program it through the usb port?.
Apologies for this, but I tried what was suggested in one of the earlier posts. I had
to alter its com port to 09 (it came up originally on com17).
I clicked build to chip, and it said it was finished, but my uno was still running the
previous program.
thanks john

Hi!

I have also problem´s to get arduino running.

I use Win7 64bit

After I have install the driver the USB for AVRISP and follow the tread here and change portect.I still get this message:

HI monie
WHat does your arduino show up as in the device manager , are you also using win 8.1 etc
Can you also select the arduino programmer in the compiler options and click export give it a name(i recommend using your username with a 1 added) . then post it here so i can have a look at the setup

Hi Dazz:
I use Win 7 64 bit.
In devicemanager I can see the Arduino USB. Sometime it connected to port 3 and sometime port 4. But I also change it in FC config (Build/compileroption/ parameters to the same port.

I follow Bens instruction.
I have install the originally Arduino software including the USB driver + Usb driver (MM) AVRISP.

Hello,

We are currently in the final stages of a new release which has far superior Arduino support built in and should allow these devices to be programmed much easier.

Your program is currently not even compiling.
'C:\Program' blev ikke genkendt som en intern eller ekstern kommando,
et program eller en batchfil.
Completed compilation, return = 1
Maybe try adding speech marks around the compiler location in the compiler options?

Hello Benj

I try run your setup.
But no luck.
Will wait till comes with an update of Flowcode 6 with a new update of Arduino

Hi Ben!

Do you have any idea how long time before the new release. Really look forward to test it, and if it would be easyer to setup the different Chip an Arduinoer. :D

Hello Monie,

It looks lik eyou did not include the " speech marks around the setting as the compiler output is still giving an error about C:\Program
Launching compiler...
'C:\Program'
What happens if you include the speech marks?

"$(appdir)compilers\avr\batchfiles\avra.bat"

We are doing a deal with Elektor mid September so the release should be available around that time if not before.

Hello Dazz

But how long time is this, because my FC6 I have bougth (expencive) is still not working with Arduino and is very unstable with my EB006 ver.9

Hi Monie
V6.1 is now available(couldnt say too much the other day as it was going through final testing), and you dont need to adjust any settings for arduino, simply add the arduino to your project, when you click on compile to chip, a pop up appears do what it asks and bingo ,works a treat

Hi Monie
works here, try this click on build and there should be a drop down box called programmer port select your port then compile to chip,

Hi Monie,

This is the cause of the problem.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Flowcode 6\compilers\avr\batchfiles\avra.bat atmega328p "C:\Users\Monie\Documents\FlowCode V6 Projekter\Arduino\Flowcode1.elf" "C:\Users\Monie\Documents\FlowCode V6 Projekter\Arduino\Flowcode1.c" "C:\Users\Monie\Documents\FlowCode V6 Projekter\Arduino\Flowcode1.lst"

'C:\Program' blev ikke genkendt som en intern eller ekstern kommando.
Basically the command line command cannot find "C:\Program" which is strange as we should be passing this in quotes.

"$(appdir)compilers\avr\batchfiles\avra.bat"

I cannot see the quotes on your compiler output, I wonder if the registry has been corrupted at all. Can you do a full uninstall and reinstall to see if this solves the problem?

Also are you using any tools like System Mechanic as these can play havoc with your systems registry?
