button to unlock hung upload port?
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!   Cheesy

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.
