Hi all, just starting out with all of this so forgive me if I've missed a post that already covered my issues...
I've been a mac user for years, and just picked up a small acer laptop running windows 8. I've been trying to install the Mission Planner for a couple of hours now, and it won't go. The installer runs most of the way through, then the progress bar runs backwards and it says it encountered an error. The really irritating bit, is that it doesn't specify what the error is.
Things I've already tried:
I have installed the latest .net 4.5 framework, which just returns a prompt stating that it's already there. I tried to install 3.5 as well as I read a reply on another post that said that the two can co-exist. When I run the installer for 3.5 I get the prompt that asks for permission to alter the comp etc, but after that nothing happens.
I have also followed the steps outlined here:
although as I currently understand it, this should only affect the ability to communicate with the APM once Mission Planner is running.
