When I first installed the OpenMV IDE under Windows 10, the serial terminal in the IDE worked fine. I hasn’t been accepting keystrokes for a while. It will still show output/errors and a REPL prompt I can’t use. I can send keystrokes through a Tools/OpenTerminal terminal (after disconnecting the IDE).
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the IDE and drivers, rebooted, and renamed my %APPDATA%\OpenMV\OpenMVIDE.ini file to force it to reconfigure from scratch. Still can’t use the IDE’s primary serial terminal. Also tried running as administrator.
IDE is version 2.6.9 connecting to an H7+ with the latest 4.0.1 firmware. Windows is now version 21H1 but the problem began prior to that 21H1 feature update. Device manager says the port is an OpenMV Cam USB COM Port (COM14) and the driver Provider is OpenMC, LLC date 9/9/2016, version 126.96.36.199. (Also shows up as a MicroPy publoard Flash USB Device using Microsoft’s driver.)
Possibly similar to Is the serial terminal in IDE output only? but that was a while ago and doesn’t seem quite the same.
