I received my Kickstarter OpenMV board a couple days ago and I was really excited to try it out. But I’ve been unable to use it because the IDE won’t run. I’ve tried on both Windows 10 and Ubuntu 14.04, using their respective IDE versions from your Downloads page.
On Windows, I unzipped the folder and double-clicked the OpenMV IDE icon. Nothing happens. In Task Manager, I can see that it’s running but no window appears. I’ve tried changing the program compatibility settings but nothing helps it.
On Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, I unzipped the folder and tried double-clicking the openmv-ide icon. Again, nothing happens.
So I went to the Terminal and here’s what it said when I ran it:
bash: ./openmv-ide: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
Can you please help me get the IDE up and running so I can play with my new OpenMV board?
Or is there a way I can use a different IDE? Of course, the problem with that is how do I see the preview images showing what the camera sees and what it’s recognizing?
