My photons just arrived today, and I was eager to try one out. I’m using a laptop running windows 7 (64-bit) that already had node.js installed (v0.12.4), so I just installed the driver and CLI (per Particle’s instructions). I was able to setup an account using
particle setup and connect to my home WiFi using
particle serial wifi, but as I started exploring the CLI I noticed that some commands fail. For example, attempting to run
particle serial identify times out although the
list command shows it is connected. Any idea what is wrong / what I’m doing wrong?
$ particle --version 1.5.16 $ particle serial list Found 1 device connected via serial: COM8 - Photon $ particle serial identify ! serial: Serial timed out Potentially unhandled rejection  Serial timed out (WARNING: non-Error used) (Ctrl-C) $ particle serial mac ! serial: Serial timed out Potentially unhandled rejection  Serial timed out (WARNING: non-Error used)
