Dear Chip and Creare ,
I’m trying to get software installed to try out Tympan!
I hope these notes will make it easier to prepare instructions for other novices to get started.
I’m running Windows 10 (unfortunately) on a Surface Pro 4
The Arduino IDE installed fine, following your instructions. Clicked on the shortcut - all is well.
When I tried to install the Teensy Add-on, I get this message:
“Windows 10 USB Serial Driver found.
No driver installation required.”
(It then asks for a folder for installation, but the ‘Next’ button is gray…so no installation happens.)
I’ll try to continue…
Next problem (Note that I’m not an experience github user)
I clicked on “Clone and Download” on the Tympan library site, and then “Download zip”.
When I tried to unzip this into the /Arduino/library folder, I get the following error from Winzip:
"Unable to Process
Then a message appears:
"WinZip was able to extract only part of the file because it contains invalid or missing data.
Would you like to keep the partial file?
(Note the partial file will be named CORRUPT.)."
It asks me to continue…but then I get the same error on the next file, and three others. Forging ahead…
I went ahead and connected the hardware to my USB port.
Started up the Arduino IDE, but under “Tools” and “Board” there is no
"Teensy 3.6" option (probably because of the problems above.)
There is also no entry under the “Tools” menu for “USB Type” (only “Port”) and “Serial + MIDI + Audio” isn’t an option.
The hardware seems to come up in “pass through” mode, and sounds good. But I’m completely stuck on trying to work with the software.
Any advice would be appreciated.
