Hi Lars

Is there anyone else besides myself who has been unable to configure my Certabo board?

Hi Bryan,

not as far as I know.

If possible, please send me the log files of the latest version. Maybe there's a clue why.

Regards,

Lars

Great work Lars! Nice to see community based development around the amazing Certabo boards.

Hello Lars

Thank you for joining here! We have had some enquiries from Certabo users from different platforms.

Is it possible to have compiled version for Mac and Unix? Or you see any major problem?

Many thx and all the best

Pietro

 

Hello Pietro,

currently the code is only written for .NET Framework and only for Windows. For other platforms I have to write the

code for .NET Standard. The major problem is the access to the COM port which is not part of the .NET Standard, yet.

Well, I have to find a library for this. Next, I don't have a Mac OS system to test it on.

I'm sorry, but I can't promise a solution for the next few months.

Regards,

Lars

 

Hello,

I found a solution to run with HIARCS Chess Explorer. A new version will be available in the next days.

I changed from .NET Framework 4.7 to .NET Core 3.1. The .NET Core 3.1 environment was
published by Microsoft in December 2019. I can't expect everyone to have it installed.

So the .NET Framework version will still be updated and available.

Regards,

Lars

Hi Lars,

what was the problem (resp. fix) with HIARCS?

br Hari

Hi Hari,

the problem was a stable communication on standard in/out. I did not receive all commands send by HIACRS. Now I use exactly the same source code, compiled for .NET Core instead of .NET Framework and it works. Unfortunately I have to use .NET Core 3 to get an executable EXE file instead of just a DLL file as with .NET Core 2.

Regards,

Lars
