I have been trying to figure this out now for a few weeks. I have to reach out for help.
Here are the facts
I have a Teensy that works well with Arduino testing. It is on COM3 as per the screen shot attached. It works when I test the Example files so COM3 is a goer.
I have flashed the ROM on Teensy from https://github.com/DirectOutput/TeensyStripController/releases by downloading the file, opening in the TeensyProgram, pressing auto and loading the file and it says OK to reboot. Teensyprogramming.png
I have unblocked all DLLs
I have installed DOF under c:/directoutput
I have removed DofLinx until I can get it sorted
I dont have ANY other devices other than the Teensy
I have am using all channels of Teensy. 71 x 6 (channels 1-6) for Matrix and 2 x 71 (channels 7 & 8 ) for right and left sides.
Tried with Firewall On/Off - Re-installed
My only hunch is that the flash of Teensy did not work??
Here is the issue
Check out the video -
1. I open the Config tester and select the GlobalConfig_B2sServer.xml file and it opens
2. I then try to open Cabinet and it crashes with this error.
