I have to update the PanelDue firmware, I have the firmware, the page says I need bossac to install it. I have gone to the page and it leads me to git hub....
No where on the github Do I see anything for Windows it's all Linux. So no idea what to do next any help would be wonderful, thanks.
bossac-1.7.0-mingw32.tar.gz is what you're after, that's the Windows build. Click the Shumatech link in the PanelDue documentation, scroll down to binaries, bob's your auntie.

Ahh I saw that binary, Thanks! Guess I assumed it would say something like inx64 or winx86. Silly me lol.
All I see is the command prompt version, it claims an installer and GUI, how does one get that version
The command prompt version is the one to use. There is a link to David's blog from this page which shows how to use it to update the firmware:https://duet3d.com/wiki/PanelDue

Thanks, I was hoping not to have to use command prompt as it always irritates me, but it is what it is I guess. Thanks for the reply.
From the PanelDue Page"you should already have the bossac program and associated device drivers on your PC"
When I get back home, are there drivers I need because there are no drivers just bossac when you travel the given link.
You can get the Windows build of bossac from here https://github.com/dc42/RepRapFirmware/ … ls/Windows.

If you hate the command line, an alternative is BOSSA - that's what I use. But it is probably best to follow dc42's instructions to the letter the first time through.
Instructions followed, firmware update successful.
Unfortunately the touch part of the touch screen still doesn't seem to work (I was hoping the firmware would fix it so I didn't mention it before), I took the screen out of the enclosure to make sure it wasn't interfering. I reseated the touch the ribbon coming off the screen to the back of the LCD but still cant seem to press the first dot.
Scratch that it works, I but a 5 inch piece of ribbon cable between the PanelDue and the screen. I have seen it done before... Anyway after removing the ribbon cable the calibration went fine.
I had issues finding a true 40-pin ribbon cable. All of the ones I ended up ordering were 40-pin, but 1 pin was not installed/used which I believe was the pin that's used for the touchscreen because without the ribbon cable it worked just fine.
Yeah that is what I figured out too, I thought maybe the pin came loose some how, didn't realize it just didn't exsist at all.
Do you know a sounce for an appropriate cable?
So my question is I cannot get the Panel Due to connect to my pc and be recognized. I have looked for a bossa driver or something without any luck. I have downloaded the github bossa command prompt stuff too.
I guess I am missing a driver but not sure where to get it from? The bossa website contains binaries I cannot open. what do I need to open those?
In the "Testing the board and updating the firmware" section,
Which step of the instructions are you stuck on?
I am stuck on getting my pc (windows 10) to recognize the panel due in the device manager.
It shows up as an unsupported driver with an ! in the device manager.
Looks like you need the Bossa port device driver. One way of getting this is to install Arduino.
I'll look at adding Bossa port support to the Duet device driver.
I have erased and reset my panelDue and my computer recognizes it as a bossa programming port I have attempted to run the command line and it stated bossac.exe is not recognized as and internal or external command...I went to http://www.shumatech.com/web/products/bossa and downloaded bossac-1.7.0-mingw32.tar.gz due to running windows 10 but the file wont run I also downloaded the bossac.exe and attempted the command line again with the same "bossac.exe is not recognized" Is there something Im missing?
I went through the same process last week.In the CMD prompt, you need to specify where your bossac.exe program is located.
Don't just type bossac.exe.You need something like c:/users/user/Downloads/bossac.exe
Thanks I'll try this

So new issue has arised after I had let my panel sit on my desk (I get distracted easily) and upon trying to connect my panel due to my pc, it will now not have the standard white background and backlight but just the backlight (Only if I flipped the jumper to 5v). Additionally while connected to my pc, it does not come up in the device manager (or hardware connected chime). So my pc does not register the due at all. I think I may have messed up something here ha.
I will try restarting my pc after this post and see if it is an issue.
