I need to remember never to be first... D/L the latest release... When I went to update the firmware the software error message sez Firmware has stopped working... Re d/l the software... no change. Ideas? How do I get back to the prior version? Now I can't run at all... help!


I did a restore and got back to prior version... Up and working again! FYI the firmware software loads no issue so something is wrong with the latest update as far as firmware update... Pressures off!


It goes through a testing phase that I sign off on. There are no known bugs on the 5 test platforms. Try rebooting your computer? Maybe try rebooting the EZ-B power?

Sounds like your computer needs a bandaid :)


This is awesome. The camera feature I have been waiting so long for has come. But what exactly do you mean by "tracking". Do you mean the script starts/stops when the movement/facial/colour is found/lost or when you turn on one of these three types of tracking? I would love to be able to apply the Finger Pad to my project. How am able to use ARC and in turn this feature on an iPad (I sound like such a newbie when I say this)

It is strange that the firmware update is not running for you @milanmark. It worked fine for me


I tried rebooting both... Restore worked on my desktop. Old version works great! Tried my laptop which I have not run the hardware but have the software loaded... exact same thing... firmware update would not run. Did a restore and firware update DID run. So... Who needs the baidaid? :)


i had the same problem when i clicked on download it went to my downloads and in that window i had multiple ARC installers im my downloads so i uninstalled ARC off my computer and the multiple ARC installers and then downloaded it again and ran fine firmware update and all


@milanmark try the 2011.11.29.01 version. See if that helps for you. I think you're in Windows XP? There might be a service pack you are missing... But either way, I have a work-around for you in this new version :)


Both computers are Windows 7... I deleted the old version 1st then tried it and the EZ-B firmware update runs this time using the 112901 version. This is on my laptop... I'll try my desktop later, that's where I am actually using the EZ-B board. Thanks for the quick response!
