ROBOTC Crashing

Whenever a robot is connected or disconnected to the computer, RobotC crashes. The computer is running Windows 8. We are using RobotC V4.

Is it possible to use the VEXnet 2.0 keys with RobotC V3? The only reason we are trying to use RobotC V4 is to test with the new VEXnet keys.

We have a fix for this random issue that’s occurring on Windows 8 machines. It’ll be released early next week with other bug fixes/enhancements.


And yes - you can use the 4.0 keys with ROBOTC 3.X - you’ll just need to use the VEX Firmware Update Utility (outside of ROBOTC) to get your devices up to date.

Note: You won’t be able to download/debug over wireless with the currently VEX Cortex Master Code with VEXNet 2.0 keys. This is a hardware/firmware limitation of the keys at the moment.
