Post ev3 NXT Firmware unrecognized on robotc v 3.62
Recently purchased Lego for Mindstorm ev3 and downloaded robotc version 3.62. Installed robotc 3.62 and when connected the ev3 nxt to the USB port and attempted to download Firmware, the NXT brick did not show up on the download firmware window...what am I missing?

ROBOTC version 3.x does not support EV3. You will have to wait until version 4 comes out before you can use your EV3 with ROBOTC. Theoretically that should be sometime in January... :?

Yes, you missed something... RobotC does not support EV3 yet! The RobotC folks are working hard on it. I am guessing the beta will be available in the next few months.

I personally would appreciate if there was at least sort of free 4.0 pre-alpha-release for download just to try out and test, even if it's quite bugged ..!

THanks for the responses....So, I just purchased the license for Robotc 3.x, does that mean I will have to buy a new license for Robotc 4.x or will I be able to pay a little extra and upgrade?

Pretty sure you won't have to pay the full whack, but you may want to contact support@robotc.net to get the full info :)
