Template App Broken


I just updated my Visual Studio to 2017, and now the C# template won't output the accelerometer data to the debug console. The only messages I'm getting are ones like this:

The thread 0x2638 has exited with code 0 (0x0).

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.



  • Hi again,

    Just to add a little more information, I added print statement as seen below to see if this code was being run:

    private Fn_IntPtr accDataHandler = new Fn_IntPtr(pointer => {
                System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("I wonder if this will ever print.");
                Data data = Marshal.PtrToStructure<Data>(pointer);

    And it never printed during the running of the program.

    However, this print statement did execute every time I hit the start button:

    private void accStart_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                IntPtr accSignal = mbl_mw_acc_get_acceleration_data_signal(cppBoard);

                mbl_mw_datasignal_subscribe(accSignal, accDataHandler);
                System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("Start button hit.");

  • The C# template is working fine for me in VS2017.  Try placing a break point in accDataHandler and see if that is hit,
  • Hi Eric,

    I appreciate your always quick responses. Today the template is working just fine for me in VS 2017. I'm not sure what was going on yesterday, but it's all good now.
