I am having trouble getting the ArduPilotGCS-Beta2 Working with my new Laptop. I have installed Labview Runtime 9 32-bit (LVRTE90std) as instructed in the wiki.
Chinese (Simplified); English; Korean; German; Japanese; French
Windows 2000; Windows 7; Windows XP; Windows Vista; Windows Vista x64; Windows 7 64 bit
I have downloaded and installed the latest version of the GCS from the download section, and I have downloaded and installed the latest version of Google Earth (version 22.214.171.1247).
Here is the problem I am having. When I launch the GCS, GE opens and initializes, the GCS opens. When I go to the setup tab I can't set the com port. The only com port listed is com 4, which is normally used by my FTDI cable which is not currently connected. I have tested the X-Bees, and confirmed communications with the X-CTU utility. The device manager shows the X-Bee connected to com 5. I have tried turning on the ArduPilot, no change.
I am using the following hardware and software:
Toshiba A665 Laptop
Intel I3 Quad Core 2.27GHz
500GB 7200 RPM HD
Display: 1366 x 768
Windows 7 Home Premium
Labview 2009 LVRTE90std.exe
Google Earth version 126.96.36.1997
I'd really love to get this working! So if anyone can offer any support/suggestions please let me know!
