Bluetooth connection with iCommand and Windows

Postby Romain » Fri May 11, 2007 2:31 pm

Hi,

Since a whole week (more or less ;) ) I try to execute iCommand program from my computer under a Windows XP OS with my NXT brick.
I follow different tutorials but never find a stable solution.

When I pair the NXT and the PC and next, execute the iCommand program, it throws a gnu.io.PortInUseException.
I find somewhere that I don't have to pair NXT and PC before execute iCommand. But, if I don't do that, I haven't got a COM port in the hardware manager and so, the iCommand throws a gnu.io.NoSuchPortException.

I find a solution : pair the NXT and the PC, reboot and then it works.
But I'm not satisfied cause after about 10 mins I catch a gnu.io.PortInUseException.

Anybody has a good solution to execute iCommand and connect NXT with the PC correctly ?

Thanks

Romain

There's no good answer for this at the moment. If you are using RXTX you might want to try using Javacomms instead but that's not guaranteed. Lawrie Griffiths has a new solution for iCommand using Bluecove that works better and users won't have to do any special installation (of RXTX) to make it work. Stay tuned for a new release some point in the future.

Hi, thank you to answer.
Finally, I decide to try another bluetooth device and it seems to work fine.
