Our school has three robot kits. One kit was purchased this year. I am not sure of the age of the other two kits.
In the Vex Robotics Wiki page Software Downloads under Update PC Drivers it states
If your kit is newer than June 2012, use this driver.
How can I easily determine if my kit is post June 2112?
Thanks for taking the time to contact us.
This statement is referring to the Hardware Programming Cable, not the whole robotics kit. The easiest way to tell the difference between the pre-2012 & post-2012 Hardware Programming Cable is doing a visual inspection.
