A few days ago my InMove (Alex), got stu[pid on me. He just stopped working pretty much and then would not complete initialization. Every time I started him up he would sound the alert that he was having issues with his serial ports. I have set his ports in the config file number 6 to be 3,4 and 5 with five being his neopixel port, and the other two his two Arduino Mega imbedded processors.
I am using the device manager in windows 10 to keep and eye on what is going on and adjust whch ports exist and their various parameters. When the usb cable is connected ports 6 and 7 appear and Alex tries to connect to ports 9 and 10 which do not appear in the device manager.
I make sure that all of the ports are set at 115200 for port speed. I have used the swing gui to check the Arduino ports and I can manually attach to ports 3,4,6, 7, 9 and 10. I choose ports 3 and 4 and they attach (left and right both turn the attach indicator green), but he does not work because the configuration files have not run. I do not know how to run them manually or individually and when I restart the computer and re-run the start inmove process I get another misconfiguration.
Does anyone have a clue as to what the heck is going on? I am fiddling around with this in lieu of just blanket upgrading MyRobotLab and re uploading the .ino from it to get thelatest version of that also. (basicly starting from ground zero).
I would prefer to understand what the problem is and fix it than just zero out everything and re-install/upgrade. I'm kind of picky that way. I may however be driven to the nuclear option out of frustration if I can not find the real problem.
Thanks for reading this and thanks in advance for any help you might be able to offer.
