mpremote usage on windows

Post by haybarry » Sun Jun 13, 2021 6:23 am

Hi,

Feeling stupid, but can't run mpremote from win64 laptop target RPi PICO.

Error message
File "c:\python39\lib\site-packages\mpremote\console.py", line 145, in set_conout_mode
fdout = os.open("CONOUT$", os.O_RDWR)
NameError: name 'os' is not defined

I can import os in REPL on laptop but something is missing here.

Thanks for any help

Barry

It's a bug in mpremote: it is missin an 'import os' statement. I created an issue for it: https://github.com/micropython/micropython/issues/7390

As a a workaround for now, you could open console.py and insert 'import os' on line 145. Also if that works would be great if you could leave a comment in the github issue mentioned above. Or if you find other problems; seems likely no-one used this on windows yet.

Thank you.

That gets mpremote started on windows.

Now to work out how to terminate code running on the target (RPi PICO) without terminating mpremote ....
