Hello,

 

This is my first 5 minutes using the FRDM-KE04Z evaluation board.  

 

After following the quick start instructions (FRDM-KE04Z Quick Start Package) and downloading the drivers

 

from here:

http://cache.nxp.com/assets/downloads/data/en/board-support-packages/FRDM-KE04Z_QSP.zip?fsrch=1&sr=5&pageNum=1  

 

and here:

I plugged my FRDM-KE04Z board into the USB - it shows up as a mass-storage device on my virtual Windows 7 machine - called FRDM-KE04Z (as expected).   Briefly the RGB light cycled through - then nothing but a blinking green light between located U4 and U5 on the FRDM-KE04Z board.   I unplugged then replugged the USB in a few times - the green light between U4 and U5 is on solid - and nothing else happens.  According to the quick start instructions I should see the RGB LED respond to tilting the boars (thanks to the built in accelerometer).

 

Now, I did noticed a debug.log file in the FRDM-KE04Z directory (the mass storage device).  I opened the log file and found this:

 

[0216/080404.082:ERROR:crash_report_database_win.cc(426)] unexpected header

 

Being that I've spent all of 5 minutes on this and I have very little computer experience (although I have played a lot with Microchip) - I am unsure what to do next.  

 

I have not moved on to other steps - such as installing some kind of compiler.

 

Anyway, I'm sure there is a simple reason why the Demo appears not to run.   If anyone has suggestions I'd be happy to read them.

 

Thanks!

 

David
