Can't get it to work! Help!


#1

Hi! Can’t get my circuit playground to work! Is there a requirement for a certain version of Windows?

There are a couple of pieces needed to get the circuit playground working, including installing the Arduino drivers if you are on Windows. Please visit https://studio.code.org/maker/setup to run a test of your system configuration. If you are unable to get your board working from that setup page, use the survey to submit a support ticket to our developers.

I got the following question from our IT technician when I requested installation using “https://studio.code.org/maker/setup”. Can someone help me answer this question. thanks.

Hello there,
I am trying to deploy this software to multiple computers; multiple users per computer. Is there an msi installer so I can run it from SCCM to deploy it? Or are there any switched I can run after the .exe for silent install and to install for all users?

Thank you.

Our engineers are working a multi-user installer; we’ll report back here when it’s ready.

Hi there!

We’ve released Code.org Maker App 1.1.2, which includes an update to our Windows installer so instead of “one-click install” there should now be an “Install for all users” option.

We’re still working on an .msi installer, which we understand will enable installing over a network with a group policy. We’ll make sure to post here when it’s released.

Thanks!

There is now an MSI installer at http://downloads.code.org/maker/Code.org+Maker+App-1.1.3-msi-win.zip - we’re not yet sure how well it works for network installation, as we don’t have a Windows network to test on. If you get a chance to test it out, please let us know how it goes. Thanks!
