I'm quite a newbie, I am trying to use the Parallax BOEbot with MSRS.

I am trying to follow the Parallax text ( MSRS Bluetooth Boe-BotR Robot (#28118) v1.2), but getting stuck at the first step Sad

I've downloaded Microsoft Robotics Studio v1.5
When I run the Robotics Studio Command Prompt, I get a message at the top that says...

Setting environment to use Microsoft .NET Framework v2.0 SDK tools.
For a list of SDK tools, see the 'StartTools.htm' file in the bin folder.

I enter in CD samples\Platforms\Parallax\BASICStamp2, and press the enter key. I then type BASICStamp2.csproj

but all I get is a pop-up saying that Window can't open this file and asks me to find a program that can... It is as though it does not recognize files with a .csproj extension.

I don't think MSRS is installed correctly (as evidenced by the message I get when I run the MSRS Command Prompt.

Any ideas

Hi,

You'll need to install Visual Studio (or the C# express version) if you want to open a csproj file- that's a C# project.

What about the following message I get when I open the Command prompt

Setting environment to use Microsoft .NET Framework v2.0 SDK tools.
For a list of SDK tools, see the 'StartTools.htm' file in the bin folder.

... is that what I am suposed to see

When you run the Microsoft Robotics Studio Command Prompt, it tries to find the installations of Visual Studio and .NET Framework on your machine and sets the environment variables accordingly. This helps to have easier access to the development tools from the command prompt, like msbuild, devenv (VS IDE), and other programs. If you already have Visual Studio installed and you cannot run .csproj files from the command prompt then try to open the projects from inside Visual Studio (Open Project... Ctrl+Shift+O)

Thanks
