Picaxe programming cable will not work
August 30, 2012
I have made the start here robot and am trying to program it.
I have tried to download the driver for the cable. When I run the self-installing driver that you get from picaxe.com I get to the self-extractor, the progress bar reaches the end and then the window closes and no other window opens. I am not sure whether another window should open but I thought you had to set it up.
When I run the picaxe programming editor and click the check firmware version button it just come up with an error message saying 'serial port error - port not present or already in use!'
I have uploaded a picture of the screen when I get this message
Please help if you can because I would love to start to program my picaxe 28 project board.
