Post Do new, white VexNet Keys work with 3.62?
We just received new VEX Classroom/Competition Kits. These have the new VEXNet Keys that are white. We are using RobotC3.62. We can't communicate from joystick to cortex. Do we need to download RobotC 4.X to make the new keys work?

We also purchased the new white keys and have had no success making them work. Someone, please, offer suggestions or information on what we need to do. We were planning on using them for our next competition.

I contacted VEX and received the following note:

Please install the Firmware Upgrade utility in your PC from here: http://content.vexrobotics.com/download ... thInst.zip

The Version 4 will be a 30-day trial unless you pay to upgrade. Would have been nice to have known that when ordering the white keys.

Then you can use the installed program to download the new firm ware into your Cortex and Joystick.

You will need to reprogram both the Cortex and Joystick individually with a USB to USB cable. You may need to check and change the communication port.

We have done all of this and still have not had complete success. We have not yet gotten the joystick to take the new program.

I have encountered the same problems. The keys work fine when using the factory firmware and default code. Whenever I upload anything through ROBOTC the keys will no longer pair since RobotC requires their firmware be uploaded. Is there going to be a new version of robotc that is compatible with these new keys?
