Hello vdenufrio,

What I recommend is to update your system using the firmware we have listed in our website. This means, you will have to install in your PC the following firmware update utilities:

VEXnet Firmware Upgrade Utility 4.1.5
VEXnet Key 2.0 Firmware Upgrade Utility V 3.0

Once they are installed in your PC, let me know and I can go in further details.

firmware upgrade utility 4.1.5 and vexnet key 2.0 firmware upgrade utility v 3.0 has been downloaded. followed instructions for vexnet joystick configuration in robotc. No connection between remote and cortex?? I assume joystick controls are by default and do not need to be programmed into joystick?


Please use the VEXnet Firmware Upgrade Utility 4.1.5 to re-load the firmware into the Microcontroller and Joystick directly. All you have to do is connect the Microcontroller or Joystick directly to the PC via USB A-to-A cable and click the download button on the VEXnet Firmware Upgrade Utility.

See attached screenshot for reference.
Let me know your results.
