I could not believe my luck when the email appeared – one of my readers let me know there’s a Windows environment for the ESP8266 AT LAST. No more messing with VMs.
Excitedly I downloaded the package here and followed the instructions TO THE LETTER (that’s important). I ran the batch file and LO – a DOS box popped up on my Windows 7 machine – and… I could compile the code !!!
Well, I saw some open and closing directories – whereas the instructions for MAKE suggested it might take 5 minutes or so…. I tried the second instruction and that looked more promising ….and yes, it generated BINARIES – two of them. That was a bit worrying as the AT demo has more binaries than that. Anyway, the FLASHER popped up and I blew the firmware for the board, SO excited.. and..
Nothing. Can’t see any common sense at 9600, 56k or 115k. Something’s coming out of the board initially but it doesn’t make any sense.
Want to give it a try and tell me what happens? And if you figure it out – come in here and let everyone else know so finally we can get on and experiment without having to delve into Linux… yes, despite the setback – I’m still excited…
