I’m working on a project with the electron, but cannot seem to get any traction.
I’m using Workbench on Windows 10. I’ve flashed the LED blink tutorial and watched the light blink. Now I’m moving on to integrating other things, but I cannot seem to get Serial output to work using Workbench.
I’m connected through the USB that I use to flash. Windows device manager shows COM4 in use in ports. When I jump into the CLI inside VSCode: particle serial monitor states serial monitor opened successfully… then nothing.
The only thing the code does is Serial.begin(9600) in setup() then in loop() Serial.println(“Test”); delay(5000).
That’s it. But there isn’t anything coming across serial. Firewalls all disabled. Windows Defender disabled. I’ve tried cycling through the modes. Blinking blue. Nothing. Anything else: nothing.
Any ideas where I’m going wrong here? Is the usb that allows local flashing input only?
