PlatformIO Baud Rate

PlatformIO Baud Rate
July 22, 2020 10:21AM

Finally got PlatformIO to do some of what I want it to.

However I cannot find where to set the PlatformIO / Marlin Auto Build / Upload Baud Rate to Speed of 115200.

--- Available filters and text transformations: colorize, debug, default, direct, hexlify, log2file, nocontrol, printable, send_on_enter, time
--- More details at [bit.ly]
--- Miniterm on COM6  250000,8,N,1 ---
--- Quit: Ctrl+C | Menu: Ctrl+T | Help: Ctrl+T followed by Ctrl+H ---

I somehow stumbled into a way of making a single PlatformIO / Marlin Project to partially work.
Though I cannot compile it to a Ramp as the Baud rate is incorrect. And I cannot create another

Video Attached

Lost the PlatformIO / Marlin - used the Video to find my only partially working Marlin, Can someone tell me how to change the upload baud rate.

This is crazy I have written programs in assembly language (machine language) - Fortran, Cobal, Pascal, Ardunio IDE - Visual Studio.Net and many more not listed.

Why can I not figure out PlatformIO with Marlin Auto Build's simple GUI interface to compile a simple firmware then upload.

upload baudrate is part of the platform... standard boards with standard upload protocoles and baud rates..

but you can override them in your platformio.ini

add to your environment
upload_speed = 115200

there is also
monitor_speed = 250000
this is the baud rate the inbuilt serial monitor starts at..

the default upload protocol and baud for a mega2560 is set in .platformio/packages/framework-arduino-avr/boards.txt

## Arduino/Genuino Mega w/ ATmega2560
## -------------------------
mega.menu.cpu.atmega2560=ATmega2560 (Mega 2560)

To conclude, the setting is not found in PlatformIO itself, but in the project files of the specific project you're going to upload to your board.

This is a little off this subject but here goes.

OK I kind of got Visual Studio 2019 working though I still have MSI errors, and Visual Studio 2017 has a MSI errors an refuses to install.

Does anyone have something I could try that could give me a solution.

Was incorrect it loads the GUI but will not load a working Project.

Added today.

I take that back I have a file compiled with Visual Studio 2017 so it was working for a time.

Loaded a Windows 7 backup hard disk it appears that the problem is in the windows registry here.

Well I guess i answered my own question Will need to re-load windows from scratch along with all programs.
What fun , HA HA HA.

Yesterday about bedtime, I had restored a old Norton Ghost image of Windows 7 Pro 3-Mar 2016-x64.
I do realize this is an old backup though had restored newer versions previously, all refused to let me install my newer version of Visual Studio.

Even though this was quite a chore I have windows 7 Pro running with my newly purchased version of Microsoft Visual Studio.
I have also updated most of the programs that were on this ghost backup, I find that there is not too many programs that I need to re-install.
Other than my 3D Printer utilities and of course OBS Studio is already running...

Then I can make a ghost backup and reinstall the windows 10 build 1909 . As I believe that will wait on installing the Windows 10 build 2004 build for a time.
I have got used to Cortana working and the newer windows 10 build 2004, Cortana is broke and will not respond to voice commands and do what is spoken.
Example when I leave saying "Hey Cortana Go To Sleep" or "Hey Cortana Shut Down" from across the room as I walk out the door.

If I had not made so many backups this would have never been completed, as some of the programs I purchased no longer will re-register correctly as the company's are gone.
So when all software re-installed it is a must that I make another Ghost backup of the Windows 7 then Upgrade to Windows 10 and create another Ghost Backup for archive.
You never know when windows is going to sleep forever...

Sorry this has gone off subject will return now that it appears to be working. And I get PlatformIO installed again.
