Title: button to unlock hung upload port?
Post by Harrzack on Oct 19th, 2018 at 4:36pm
Every so often using VS2015 I might accidentally do a second F5 when one is in progress.   This often results in the upload port becoming unavailable - and is a REAL PITA to get it restarted on Win10.  Is there any chance a "magic button" could be added to VM that would clear the hung upload port?   If so - generations yet unborn will raise up and sing praises to your name!   :D

Each board has its own tool chain that we run to perform upload. Such as avrdude.exe for avr boards.

If you open "Task Manager > Processes" you will find and be able to terminate whatever process is being used.

Thanks Tim!   I've been scouring the net for months - looking in "all the wrong places"!  Makes sense = never quite could figure out
why so many hangs.

If you switch on Upload Verbose you should always see the process that is being run.
