We have been using VCS & tried to import our competition template to VEXcode. Import went well but when we clicked build, we can’t seem to find it on the V5 brain. The home screen has the joystick icon, settings, VCS buttons, program folder button … but we can’t seem to find a VEXcode button for the file that was downloaded. Did we miss a step? Thank you.

That’s ok we got it working. For some reason, we were not getting the download button, just the build button. Followed the instructions for VEXCode which shows the build button, not the download button. I don’t know if the VCS Update 1.0.6 made the difference but later in the day when we showed it to our mentor, we disconnected the download cable & restarted (which is what we had done 3 times earlier) but all of a sudden the build button now appeared as the download button. This enabled us to download onto the V5 brain. Was it just because we had downloaded update 1.0.6 or was there some other reason the download button did not appear earlier?

Capture
When I open VEXCode, this blank screen pops up. It doesn’t allow me to create any new projects, or open existing projects. I have a windows 10 computer, so it should be compatible. It looks like the text-editor part isn’t working at all. Most of the buttons pull up dialogs, except the check for updates button. Any idea what could cause this error?

What is the current or planned support for communicating with custom electronics. As a vexu programmer I am interested if we will be able to interface to arduinos and such with VEXcode via the smart ports.
