I am using another computer to write the program using WindRiver…how would I take the Build file (I don’t even know what it is called!) , transfer it over to the Classmate and load the file onto the cRio?? Thanks
I would say to download your code from whatever other computer you are programming on instead of going through the hassle of transferring to the classmate. That would probably make version control a little bit less of a nightmare too.
Personally I still have not installed Windriver on the classmate, and am still debating if I ever will. I might just stick to the old programming laptop and leave the classmate as a drive station.
You don’t transfer your robot code via the Classmate, you transfer from WindRiver directly. Read the Getting Started Guide for more information on how to set things up.
We are using SVN for version control of our WindRiver Workbench Projects. One idea we had was to setup the Classmate with SVN so it could synchronize with any of the programmers projects, rebuild, and load them to the cRIO. It should make for more rapid development over the first few weeks when all the programmers want access to the cRIO to test their code and learn how the deployment process works.
