  • NOTE: You do not install Gadgeteer into Visual Studio.

    NOTE: You install Gadgeteer into your project that is already created and opened inside Visual Studio.

    1. Open Visual Studio.
    2. Open your existing project that you want to use with Gadgeteer or create a new project.
    3. Click the Tools dropdown menu and then click NuGet Package Manager and then Package Manager Console...
    4. Near the bottom of Visual Studio, you should find a cursor flashing next to PM>
    5. Here, type in the following exact case-sensitive command:
      Install-Package GHIElectronics.UWP.Gadgeteer
    6. Done!

    Good luck!

  • Here is the page from GHI Electronics describing what you need to install. Make sure you are using Visual Studio 2013 (not VS 2015):
    https://www.ghielectronics.com/support/netmf

    I believe your project templates are located here:
    http://gadgeteer.codeplex.com/releases
    Good luck!

  • Hi, Rakshithc.

    It can downloaded and installed into your Visual Studio project via a NuGet package.

    Here:
    https://www.nuget.org/packages/GHIElectronics.UWP.Gadgeteer/

    With the VS project open and selected, you can install it with the Package Manage Console. Use the instructions for "Installing a Package" shown here:
    http://docs.nuget.org/consume/package-manager-console

    Good luck!

  • Here is the main Gadgeteer website.

    There is a link on the page called "Get Started".

    There, it will walk you through all the requirements you need to set up for programming Gadgeteer such as:

    • getting the hardware
    • installing Visual Studio
    • installing the .NET Micro Framework
    • installing board-specific software

  • Hi, Rakshithc.

    You can safely ignore the "obsolete" warnings. They are not errors.

    FEZCerberus was marked obsolete by GHI Electronics because the project is no longer active. These warnings can be safely ignored.

    From now on, you should post your questions about Gadgeteer in the GHI Electronics forum for Gadgeteer, located here:
    https://www.ghielectronics.com/community/forum/board?id=21

    On a related note, here is their response to another beginning developer who also had obsolete warnings for a slightly different product:
    https://www.ghielectronics.com/community/forum/topic?id=21212

    Good luck!

  • Ok sir but that is an error.. building not completed ao I posted... if it not an error then it muat complete Buil or Rebuild .. the project build shows the same error.. any help??

  • No, those are not build errors. Those are build warnings.

    If you are getting build errors with red error icons (not yellow warning icons as shown above), I suggest you ask the Gadgeteer experts who work with these circuit board at the forum I had mentioned above.

    In Visual Studio, click the View dropdown menu and then click the Output menu to see the Output window near the bottom of the screen. It should show the final build results.

  • You probably need to install .NET 3.5 on your machine, as stated here:
    https://github.com/NETMF/netmf-interpreter/issues/12

    .NET 3.5 Download here:
