Is there any way to upgrade the firmware on a Basic Stamp with a Windows CE device?· I tried running the single executable containing the object code and the Stamp Loader program, but the executable does not seem to be able·to run on the Windows CE device.

Hello,



We are currently working with a company called FlexiPanel and hopefully we will have a device soon that will perform this function.· As of now, we have a device that allows you to program the BASIC Stamp using a Bluetooth device called the ToothPIC from FlexiPanel.· You can find more information at www.flexipanel.com (http://www.flexipanel.com) .

I am using the Vortex86-6070 (http://www.icoptech.com/products_detail.asp?ProductID=70) running Windows CE with a Basic Stamp 2p40 connected to it through a serial port. I need to be able to upgrade the Basic Stamp through a wired connection, wireless will not do. The Stache: BASIC Stamp Field Programmer looks like a possibility if I cannot find a way to upgrade the Basic Stamp through the Windows CE device.

I was looking over the PBASIC Tokenizer Library and the Basic Stamp Programming Protocol and was wondering how hard it would be to write a program in either C# or C++ that would take the tokenized byte codes of a Basic Stamp program and program the Basic Stamp...

I agree with your idea about using the Stamp Stache.· This is a known good product and should work·very well for your project.· Here is a link for the Stamp Stache:· http://www.parallax.com/detail.asp?product_id=27330
