Which COM port do I use?
- After successfully flashing, the Meadow device shows up as USB Serial Device (COMXX) in Device Manager under Ports (COM & LPT). In the Meadow Device Explorer window in Visual Studio, select the appropriate COMXX port to target your Meadow device.
How do I fix the exception when trying to debug a Meadow app?
If you see an assembly exception alert from Visual Studio when trying to debug a Meadow app, verify that you installed the Mobile development with .NET workload.
Could not load file or assembly ‘System.Diagnostics.Tracer, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=173d89ffae9ce988’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
- Launch Visual Studio Installer.
- Select your Visual Studio installation where you are having the debug issue.
Verify that Desktop & Mobile > Mobile development with .NET is checked, installing it if needed.
