I am new and I just installed XOD on Desktop Windows 10 - 64.
When following tutorial 02-Deploy and lauching “upload to arduino”, XOD opens the dialog to select my board model attached… and crashes !!!
I tried to reinstall, disconect board… no joy !!
Any idea to send me in the right direction?
Anybody with same experience?
Hi, there is a small delay where you load the board list, maybe it’s just that?
The list doesn’t show up… the application just crashes…
When I had problems at the beginning use the “everything search” application, and delete all the XOD folders, and then “TrashReg Freeware” to delete registry keys, it could work for you too
I uninstall XOD, removed everything, clean registry, reinstall XOD 0.25.3 and still it crashes when deploying and upload to arduino.
I can’t even select the board…
That’s weird. When you cleaned up the installation, have you removed
C:\Users\You\xod as well? If not, try to delete just
C:\Users\You\xod\__packages__ and try again. Also, hit File → Switch Workspace and make sure it points to
If nothing helps, could you run XOD IDE from
cmd.exe so that we can see stdout of the process crashed? It can contain important details.
Tks for the help…
I tried all solutions in your first paragraph, but no better…
The program loads ok, I can select the tutorial sketch, but when trying to upload… CRASH…
It takes a few seconds to crash … as it tries to load the board list and it feels like it is running out of memory…
test, menu > deploy > Upgrade Packages and Toolchains
Did that too… “All packages are up to date”
That’s really weird, so I propose to try two things:
- That @nkrkv already asked, to run XOD IDE from
1.1. Press Win+R, type “cmd”, press Enter
1.2. Then type in quotes:
"C:\Program Files\XOD IDE\XOD IDE.exe", press enter
1.3. Reproduce the bug. Probably you get an error in the terminal window. So then copy-paste it here and we’ll inspect the error.
- Probably you get caught a bug in arduino-cli that was fixed after out latest release. So you can try to update it manually:
2.1. Download latest version of arduino-cli from here: https://downloads.arduino.cc/arduino-cli/arduino-cli-latest-windows.zip
2.2. Unpack it and rename exe file in
2.3. Make a backup of already installed arduino-cli, just rename it:
C:\Program Files\XOD IDE\resources\arduino-cli.exe
2.3. Copy new one into the same folder (
C:\Program Files\XOD IDE\resources\)
2.4. Try to reproduce the bug
If something helps (or not), let us know.
[14:53:57.826] [info] Checking for update
[14:54:00.885] [info] Update for version 0.25.3 is not available (latest version: 0.25.3, downgrade is disallowed).
that is it !!
nothing is coming in the cmd window when the program crashes.
I did after second part and updated arduino-cli and still yields same crashing result:
-Opening through cmd
after a few second (22 to be precise) XOD IDE closes
No board connect? no work
I am using an Elegoo UNO R3
I tried also by disconecting the board, but same error
you could do a screenshot of in configuration - device manager to see the ports?
here it is…
the board is on COM 4
I have no issue with Arduino IDE
Could you temporarily disable other ports leaving only COM4 and try?
the message “Enumerating…” can be an indication of the problem …
I evn disconected all devices…
It’s very weird, I could assure you that’s why …
still showing “enumerating”?
It probably one of the 2 things : when it builds the list of board or when it is enumarating the ports…
After few seconds (15-20) it crashes just like it is running out of memory.
I tried to increase also the size of virtual memory to 4500 min with a max of 9500 to see if this would help, but still it crashes…
