ESP8266 Exception reporting button not available
Mar 27th, 2018 at 5:47pm
 
I am trying to debug ESP8266 with the VM debugger for the first time and trying to find out how to use the Serial Exception Reporting feature as shown on the webpage http://www.visualmicro.com/page/esp8266.aspx

There is no button shown on the serial monitor when I run the debugger to create the error information in the output window.  I attached the output as an example.  I also attached a pic of the Serial Monitor window.  I am using VM with AS7 and would greatly like to use this feature.

Code (C++):
Exception (28):
epc1=0x40203e12 epc2=0x00000000 epc3=0x00000000 excvaddr=0x0033cc2a depc=0x00000000

The atmel version always takes a little longer because it goes through an approval process.

You should really be using visual studio for non-atmel and microchip hardware

Hi I still don't see this option available, my VM version says 1801.28.0, is this the correct version?

No, 1801 means Jan 2018. 1801.28 means Jan 28th 2018

You should have a flag at the top of the IDE telling you there is an update available.

If I click the flag shown next to the search bar it shows a window titled Notifications and the window shows "Notifications: 0".  Is this the flag you are referring to?

I didn't see you were using atmel studio.

There are a couple of reasons to use Visual Studio instead

1) Esp8266 is not Atmel/Microchip hardware and the Atmel IDE is supposed to be for their own hardware Smiley

2) The visual micro release notes show which IDE's have been updated with the latest functionality. The atmel updates are less frequent.

Ok sorry I didn't realize it was all for Visual Studio because the program looked very similar.  I liked the concept of the IDE being specialized for microcontroller programming however, that's why I stayed with AS7.

Makes sense. AS7 is actually Visual Studio. There will be an AS7 update over the next week or so but I don't push it for non atmel/microchip because that is against the atmel studio licensing rules.

However, what users do is none of my business  Smiley

If I am installing VS to run VM, are there issues with this if VM is already installed to AS7?  Can you run VM on AS7 and VS simultaneously?
