3. First Projects > Running the Blinky App

Running the Blinky App

Next, you’ll deploy the Netduino app to the Netduino and watch it run.

By default, Visual Studio runs projects in an emulator. This allows software developers to create and test programming logic for a new hardware product before the actual hardware is built. You won’t use the emulator since you have a real Netduino, so you must let Visual Studio know that you have physical hardware it should use instead.

Click on the Project menu and select your project’s properties (generally, the last item in the Projects menu, such as Blinky Properties). Next, do the following:

  1. When the project properties appear, click on the .NET Micro Framework category on the left side.

  2. Now you’re ready to change the deployment target from the Emulator to the Netduino. Change the Transport from Emulator to USB and then make sure that the Device selection box shows your Netduino, as shown in Figure 3-3. If it doesn’t, unplug and reattach your Netduino.
