Post Cortex won't download program even with fix.
Hey, so I used to program in RobotC two years ago during the elevation competition, but now that I've returned for the college competition, I haven't been very successful with downloading to the new Cortex.

I have installed the firmware and have the new beta and everything. I've even followed the directions in viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2486
but there appears to be a failure in the connection between the Computer and the Cortex that not even messages can breach.

Does anyone seem to have a solution to such a problem?

Also, early Thank you!

I had the same problem and so I started using easyC and that worked, I was able to download, but I hate easyC. So I went back and tried robotC and I found that I had to download the firmware found at the bottom of the Robot menu, then I downloaded the firmware following the directions on the start page and it worked. I don't know if I just got lucky, but I hope it works for you.

Hi,

Have you downloaded the latest IFI Master Firmware to your Cortex via VEXnet Upgrade Utility before putting the ROBOTC Firmware on?

You can get this from http://www.vexforum.com/wiki/index.php/VEXnet_Upgrade

Try that and let me know what happens.

Hey guys, thanks for the help. I got it working now!

I admit I didn't realize a difference in the firmwares but i still had the Master firmware DL'd and installed, so now i installed the one at the bottom of the robot menu, and it works!
Thanks for the help.
